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.

    For the first three stanzas use a rhyming scheme of aaba, then the last stanza bbbb: now choose a mundane topic but being an egomaniac, pump it up to seem important. Like that which follows

    Richard, will you please direct us to your magnum opus or collection of substantial works that we might better understand your own qualifications regarding the appreciation and creation of poetry? (Report)Reply

    Hello there Patrick,
    Just go to my poems and you will see my tips on how to write a Robert Frost Masterpiece; your topic must be facile, fatuous and you use a nursery rhyme style iambic pentameter, but twist the banal to appear monumentally important.

    That this numb skull still gets praise for his stupid attempts at poetry demeans his admirers, and his ranking on this site is ridiculous; his monomaniacal doggerel should be consigned to the dustbin of history; his work makes Mills and Boons novels look like masterpieces. (Report)Reply

    Robert, may we ask what is your magnum opus or collection of substantial works that we may understand your qualification regarding the creation and appreciation of poetry?

    Patrick Soch(3/28/2020 8:41:00 PM)

    Richard, may we ask what is your own magnum opus or collection of your own great works that we should trust in your skill at poetry and/or its appreciation?

    Patrick Soch(3/28/2020 8:39:00 PM)

    Richard, where's your magnum opus, may we ask? Or some collection of your great works we might reference to understand the depth of your understanding of poetry, either the appreciation thereof or its actual creation or both?

    I am sorry but your comment Richard ponsby made me laugh out loud. Of course, you are allowed your own opinion (even if it is a silly opinion, in my opinion) but I completely disagree. It seems you can do better, so why haven't I seen your poem everywhere with people praising it? It seems to me, you're a hypocrite. You haven't written a poem anywhere nearly as famous as this one, and still you criticise. Eh, each to his/her/their own!

    Hey Pop,
    that peeping tom, Frost is out again staring rhrough our window, he always says he took the wrong road, but we know he's not straight, why doesn't he get a job like the rest of us instead of creeping around on his inheritance?
