"Miles to go before I sleep" = những dặm dài phải đi trước khi tôi ngủ -> cụm từ này nghĩa là có nhiều điều cần thực hiện trước khi được nghỉ ngơi.

Ví dụ
When Frost filed his copy, the only poet to win four Pulitzer Prizes and the American institution who gave us, in haunting duplicate, the tag line “And miles to go before I sleep,” turned into a kid pitcher again at Rockingham Park in Salem, N.H. In other words, baseball transported him, or as he noted in his SI piece, “some baseball is the fate of us all.”

In 1980, he bought a small farm in Howard, where he remodeled and expanded an old farmhouse. He enjoyed growing and selling Christmas trees with his family for many years. He loved woodworking, making bluebird houses and, later in life, wonderful pieces of furniture for his family. He had an appreciation for music and we will remember him reciting poetry, including Robert Frost … “and miles to go before I sleep.”

The Emancipation Proclamation happened in 1863. The Civil Rights Act (Quyền Dân sự Luật năm 1964) was signed into law in 1964. Let’s hope it doesn’t take until 2065 for us as a nation to live up to our promises regarding these landmark legislations of 1863 and 1964. As Robert Frost so eloquently poetized: “The woods are lovely, dark and deep, but I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep, and miles to go before I sleep.”
