winter weather is certainly descending upon us. there's a chill in the air, frost on the windows and smoke rising from the chimneys. with the promise of snow, i cannot help but think of one of my favorite winter poems. it's an oldie but a goodie : )
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.
- robert frost
i hope those lovely lines leave you with a wonderful wintry image in your mind. happy december!
