Stopping by 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.

*Outside, it's starting to ice up again! Perfect night for some hot cocoa and popcorn and movie time with Daddy. Drew has a cold so we won't be taking him out in this weather. So, Mama to town for essentials and then back home for evening with a warm fire, blankets, a movie and snacks. Around here, we LOVE winter nights!! :) Enjoy the poem, Robert Frost is one of my favorites!!

Loved the pic and the poem. Awww, sounds lovely with your winter evenings. Wish I could get my guys to like that kind of atmosphere. Will have to have the grandkids come spend a night. Thanks for sharing Julie,

I love this poem. My daughter had to memorize it last year in kindergarten.

Stay warm!
