    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.

    Beautiful piece, especially when you take a peek at the construction, iambic tetrameter (mimics sound of horse trot?), and the slight implication that this person's got a long way to go before he finally rests--his final rest. Compare to "Desert Places."
