Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

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.


  1. Looks like they're trying to make sure only Trumpsters are around for the inauguration:

    1. Sounds like one of those things that's technically legal, but unethical and immoral. Very Trump. And, yes, Alan, it also sounds to me like the sort of arrangement mafiosi would make heavy use of.

  3. Nope, the Democrats still won't self-examine. Outgoing Harry Reid says the Democratic Party is just fine and would have won without Comey! Wow! They really don't get it! They don't realize yet that they're just giving away any chance of winning in 2018. Which really sucks because Republican rule is like being forced to bathe in acid.

    1. I saw that statement by Reid this morning--I would have choked but it really wasn't surprising. Looks to me like both the major parties' elites are living in alternate universes. Boy, do we need a new set of rascals...


    2. But speaking of 2018, those contests are all at the state or district level, which rather limits the influence of the national party. And Reid, of course, is now totally out of office.

  4. Tim Black sent a good inspiration piece to my email:

    F.E.A.R. has two meanings -
    Forget Everything And Run
    Face Everything And Rise

    The Choice is yours.

    1. That does give one pause for thought. Thanks, Susan.
