Robert Frost’s iconic poem Stopping By The Woods on a Snowy Evening is now part of the PUBLIC Domain! For those who don’t know, it means, it is now open to the public to use and hopefully not abuse in a myriad of ways.
I am in a melancholy mood, this new year. However, this news today did cheer me up and I wanted to share with you!
While I don’t have any snowy woods pictures to offer, I certainly have a few snowy day pics to share. Here is the poem in it’s entirety, and the link to the WAPO article….
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.
Robert Frost reciting his poem, Stopping By The Woods on a Snowy Evening.
