Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

By Robert Frost

Who’s 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.

Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening 5.

My horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.

Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening 2.

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.

Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening 4.

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.

Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening 1.

And miles to go before I sleep.
And me with a promises to keep!

  11. This is one of my favourite poems. I have an audio version of it being read by Robert Frost. I find listening to someone read poetry adds depth as well as drama to the words. Always enjoy stopping by for a visit!! πŸ™‚
