This is how Smrithi, Shirin, Anjali, Sharmishta, Serin and Meera of 8E interpret the poem:
The speaker leaves his home and heart in his beloved village and takes to wandering aimlessly. Due to his warm memories, he stops by the cold and frosty woods with his only loyal companion, his butler. He thinks about his past, which was frozen, and the future that seems as dark as the woods. His only companion, his butler, shakes him out of his thoughts about death, and reminds him of the promises he needs to fulfill before he takes rest!
