Today is the ninetieth anniversary of the publication of Robert Frost's poem, Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. Since I'm such a snow-lover, it really isn't much of a surprise that I like this poem:
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.

That is so beautiful, Lisa. I LOVE the accompanying picture with it too.
I am sure I've posted this song before, because it's one of my favorites, but it seems appropriate in this thread. I know Rhonda will love it too. And since I found out that Teresa got 8 inches of snow, I'm sure this is the perfect song for her too. This song always makes me think of my hubby...even though we're not parted like the song says, one of my favorite things in life is just to snuggle up with him on a winter's night.
