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.

    A wonderful poem that is hard to find in his books of poetry and that is sad as it should be in all of his books. (Report) Reply

    One of the most beautiful poems ever written, nothing pretentious about it, no melodrama, jsut descriptions, and nothing over described, each sentence written with such care and restraint that the mind wanders off. (Report) Reply
