Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

- 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.

The 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.

Very your house in a snowy evening"?

I've always loved the simplicity and complexity of this poem. The images are so clear but the rhyme chain is difficult to do.

Your picture to go with it is beautiful!
