  1. This poem is definitely a “keeper” and it appears to be something I would not necessarily have to archive in the memory of my computer. But because the message seems to be engrained in the human soul, the truth in it is memorable all on its own. The truth to be found is beyond the words themselves. Thank you for this post.


  2. Mine? I have read very few famous poems, but many here.
    One famous one I love is:
    Robert Frost
    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.
