Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

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.

The closing lines of the poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening (1922) by the much loved poet Robert Frost. Written in an iambic tetrameter, it is Frost’s most famous poem, after The Road Not Taken. My thanks to the supremely talented Tosha Michelle for reminding me.

The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I —
I took the one less travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.

The closing lines of ‘The Road not taken’ by American poet Robert Frost from his collection ‘Mountain Interval’ (1916)
