Beautiful Life and Style

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

5 Comments

Today I woke up to the most magical site. A city covered in a blanket of snow with even more gently falling all around. As I was walking to work I captured a few shots on my iphone- hope to add a few later! In the meantime, hope you enjoy these ones alongside one of my favorite poems. I seriously cannot walk through the snow without reciting it to myself. (thanks mom!)

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.

  3. Hi! I love this poem, too. In fact, I found you because I linked to it thanks to Zemanta. Hope you don’t mind! Also, your blog is beautiful! And you *must* go to Japan. I was in Tokyo for one weekend, and I loved it. I hope to go back. I hope you’re having a wonderful new year!
