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.

I absolutely LOVE Robert Frost. Nothing Gold Can Stay is my other favourite poem by him.

Yeah, I am big fan of that poem too! You have good taste Kairi!

Here, for everyone to enjoy;


Nothing Gold Can Stay

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

-- Robert Frost


I also enjoy, Dante Gabriel Rossetti, have you ever read him?

No, I haven't, but I'll definitely have to look for some work by him now. Anything in particular you would recommend by him?

My favorite poem of his is "Sudden Light".

Here, so you don't have to look it up.

Sudden Light

I HAVE been here before,
But when or how I cannot tell:
I know the grass beyond the door,
The sweet keen smell,
The sighing sound, the lights around the shore.

You have been mine before,
How long ago I may not know:
But just when at that swallow's soar
Your neck turned so,
Some veil did fall,I knew it all of yore.

Has this been thus before?
And shall not thus time's eddying flight
Still with our lives our love restore
In death's despite,
And day and night yield one delight once more?

Oh wow, I really like that. It reminds me a lot of Iohn's poetry in a way, which might be why, haha. I'll have to read some more of his work now. Do you write much poetry yourself, Eldrin?

Quite a bit, none of it good! Here is Ilyia's Favorite poem by me(but she likes my nature poems for some reason.)

The Fox and the Grove



T.A. Rosenbaum



The field glitter'd

Golds, unfettered greens, hidden browns between

Though I was loath to disturb that swaying hoard

That fire'y opulence, earth forged bounteous sheen

The wind tittered

Out of the reverie right then, the breeze somehow roar'd



I set out then

To emerald castle I had sought

Quickly it went, for the treasury sea

Loosed its grip on me

Like a pinioned bird set free, No longer was I caught

Then the wind was still



I reach'd the rising trees

The melody of life, was become a symphony

And as I pass'd those wooden gates

My heart rang fierce in harmony

The underbrush then flitt'd!

My heart was still, my mind racing dread fates!



The fox stood strang'ly there

N'er such rich brown eyes

Ever had I seen

So unlike mine, no hint of whys

Just knowing and serene

Long we stood breathless in wooden grove fair



N'er did that russet beast skitter

Nor did a hint of fear

Ever enter its eye

Just then I could almost hear

Some faint voice whispering, "goodbye"

As if my ears did lie



Leaving then and returning no more to me

Vanished was the fox

Once where it had stood

Only rus'ling stalks

But shaken to the depth, I waited unto the eve

Wind tussling my locks

For it took long before I could believe

What those deep eyes, comforted inside and then my heart made free!

I don't know if I like your poetry, since I've only read one poem, but I definitely like the one I just read. You should post some once in a while. I really like to read poetry, especially when I know the people who've written it.

He he, she's asking for it, isn't she? Ok, I'll try and remember to post one a week or so. That should last us about 3 years.
