He says, "Whose woods these are I think I know." I think Frost was going for both rhythm and tone. Frost writes this poem in what is classically known as a Rubaiyat Stanza which are structured in quatrains. Note the careful placements of the rhyming words in the first four lines,
Whose woods these are I think I know. A
His house is in the village though; A
He will not see me stopping here B
To watch his woods fill up with snow. A
The tone feels gentle in it's carefully rhymed and gentle accents.
