Wednesday is……………………….today. December 26, 2012

Bet you thought I was going to say it’s for poets. Today i will post another Robert Frost poem, because today it has been snowing. ALL DAY. Therefore, Frost’s “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”.

Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.

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.

  1. My favorite Frost work. I’m always left to wonder if his transition between himself at front & end vs. the little horse questioning the mistake has to do with the promise he has made – with the reiteration of a lengthy time before him with no rest.
