Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening By: Jordan Hughes
Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening 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.
