miles to go before I sleep . . .

“Snow Fox” (Mother Nature) from Girl Soda Atlas Wildcard Deck (colored pencil, 8 1/2″x11″) by K.J. Legry

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.
