Stopping At The Woods On A Snowy Evening (Cavatina) - Poem by Gert Strydom

(after Robert Frost)

In passing the nearby snow filled great woods
and icy lake,
the sheer loveliness caught the rider’s eye;
a halting break
that lingers too long could bring freezing death,
a spell in each flake
brought tiredness, but the horse moved on,
breaking that old spell, its magic was gone.
