Winter Scene

This view out our porch door earlier today, in the midst of the snowstorm currently working its way towards New England, put me in mind of this classic Robert Frost poem, and I just had to share.

Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

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.

Happy Snowy Evening everyone.

Shut. Up.

Every single time it snows, that gets stuck in my head for a week. You're totally about to get dubbed my evil twin; I'm not kidding at all.

Seriously, I have no concept of snow.

I guess I need to haul my Aussie butt over to your side of the pond so I can understand what you are all whining about.


I think I may go to the pool after dinner... *snigger*

No hope of snow in these parts for a while, but I'll happily live vicariously through you! Enjoy your snow day!

The snow is so pretty... when it's in someone else's yard.

One of my favourite poems! My mother in law called first thing in the morning to say it had snowed in the night. I rushed to the window fairly excited and all I could see was a bit of frost. So disappointing.

I absolutely love this poem.

I love Frost. I learned a round at Girl Scout camp that uses the last stanza. So lovely. (Remind me of that when I'm shoveling th eporch tomorrow, okay?)

I remember analyzing that poem in 11th grade. What a beautiful picture.

That was beautiful. However, I have to admit that it took me a moment or two to get past my recent hellish snow-related experiences to appreciate the beauty. *sigh*
