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.
A woman and her horse ride through the snow, but pause to contemplate the beauty of the quiet winter day around them. It can only be for a moment though: 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.
Whether memorized by schoolchildren or used to eulogize a president, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” written in 1922 and published in 1923, has found a place as one of the best-loved and best-known American poems of the last hundred years. Now, six decades after the passing of its author, Robert Frost, celebrated artist P.J. Lynch brings this classic to new life with exquisitely detailed illustrations, evoking its iconic moments and wintry setting on the outskirts of a small village.
