    HIS --
    Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening

    by 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.


    MINE --

    QUIET WINTER NIGHT
    (inspired by Robert Frost)


    Upon a snowy evening,
    I sit beside the fire.
    The crackling wood is sending sparks,
    Up through the chimney higher.

    A cup of chocolate in my hand,
    A book upon my lap.
    The warmth the fireís giving off,
    Is daring me to nap.

    The flames are glowing yellow gold.
    I feel Iím going to sleep,
    And settling back into the couch,
    No need for counting sheep.

    Outside the snow is piling fast,
    Against my cabin door.
    Iím glad I had the thought,
    To buy supplies the day before.

    I drift into the land of dreams,
    And snuggle in my blanket.
    The chocolate added to the cheer,
    So nicely when I drank it.

    In comfort now, I lay so soft,
    And doze throughout the night,
    While the hours slowly pass,
    And build a land of white.

    I'm so glad you liked it. I pictured the person with the "miles to go" a little later in the evening when his work was all done. I had fun writing it.
