In Robert Frost’s poem ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’ why does the horse shake its harness bells? What does it signify?
According to the poet, the horse shakes his harness bells to ask if there is some mistakes in stopping by the woods in that snowy evening. It indicates that it was a regular journey for them but they never stopped there before that day.
The horse is shaking the harness bells because it is quite an odd place to stop by as there is no farmhouse close by and the evening is the darkest of the year.
