Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening - Poem by Robert Frost

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.

    I used to like this poem a lot when I started teaching. the last stanza has beautiful lines, 'But I have
    promises to keep'.

    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.

    The line is “he will not mind me stopping here”, not “he will not see me stopping here”. Big difference! (Report)Reply

    About the audio... She misread " though" as if it were a part of the third line rather than the second. Seems pretty obvious when you look at the punctuation and word placement. What a beautiful voice she has, though. The poem ain't half bad, either! (You didn't affix the " though" to the second sentence there, did you? Of course not.) (Report)Reply
