Great Poets Read: Robert Frost (Pt. I)

21 comments

Welcome to my new series, Great Poets Read. I have a great collection of famous poets reading their poetry, so I thought I would share them with you!

Charles Osgood narrates an introduction to the poet in the first recording, then I include a recording from the poet, as well as the text to the poem. I hope you enjoy hearing masterful works of poetry coming to life as much as I do!

Introduction To Robert FrostΒ by Charles Osgood

Stopping ByΒ 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.

  1. ‘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.’ This stanza gets me everytime. Goosebumps.

              1. Good. I enjoy following your story, not only to see how you are doing, but also to help me understand the challenges someone very dear to me has faced. He has attended AA meetings every day for over a year now and calls the meetings the best part of his day. It has been wonderful to be a part of his process.
