This paper explains that Frost's careful choice of simple language and rhythm in this poem are intentional as is the personification of the horse so that it seems as though Frost is talking to it on the journey even though Frost is really only talking to himself. The paper further explains how the poem is about death and man's immortality, citing passages from the poem to illustrate this theme.
From the Paper:"The poem's title, "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening," suggests several things. We immediately know the setting, but we also have both the woods and the time of day -- evening -- suggesting darkness. Since he is just stopping, this suggests that he is looking, considering, but not necessarily going in. Throughout the poem we see images of coldness, darkness, and a suggestion that what Frost is really looking at is the prospect of death - not necessarily suicide, but his own mortality."
