Seems appropriate

Well, I don't have any woods but it is evening and it is snowing, so

...........Stopping by woods on a snowy evening

Whose woods are these
I think I know
His house is in the village though
He will not see me stopping here
To see his woods fill up with snow

My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near

Now I can't remember the rest except for the last verse

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

One of Robert Frost's best

I agree with you, George; I found the complete poem by searching on line, but am embarrassed to say I don't know how to attach a link to it.

RE: Seems appropriate

It is a beautiful poem, one of my favorites for this season.
Sad to say I have no snow and no rain, 1/2" is what we got, should have been 30+" for the season by now.
I quit whining - good night

RE: Seems appropriate

Yes, isn't it lovely? My favorite poet

Here is a link that might be useful: Stopping by Woods

RE: Seems appropriate

It is always hard for me to say which of these I like the best.

Here is a link that might be useful: The Road Not Taken

RE: Seems appropriate

Both poems are great, thanks to Gandle and Sweet Betsy.
