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.

Easy wind and downy beautiful, I think we may see some in the next few days. Winter will come whether we want it or not, but I'll be scanning seed catalogs as well and planning my order for the bees. Us Earth women never balk at a season's change, there's no time for procrastination only planning the harvest.

Thanks for your kind words of encouragement yesterday sister!

Glad they were of help Sharon... and I will be perusing the seed catalogs as well..My favorite time is when I am planning to plant those seedlings... and this is the time to look forward to connecting with the earth again..Winter makes us appreciate more...

and yes it does seem to look like there will be some of the white stuff on the ground...A blanket for the ground...
