Come In, and Other Poems is a collection of poems by Robert Frost, including his well-known "Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening, " "Nothing Gold Can Stay, " and The Road Not Taken. The titular poem, which appears for the first time in this collection, describes a narrator at the edge of a dark wood, wondering whether to step in. Through the short verse, Frost alludes to the temptation of death; his narrator, though claiming to be out for a walk, has positioned himself at the edge of what seems an inviting prospect.
Like much of Frost's work, the poem uses natural imagery and simple language to convey to readers the emotions of a scene.
