Stopping by the woods on a snowy evening  - London, January 2013

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.

Wow… 28C… I remember that *sob* Tough on grey, rainy days when my family and friends in S Africa keep telling me about how lovely the weather is… but when it snows, here, I could not trade places with them for anything! :)
