Stopping By The Woods...

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.
