Snow Flakes

Reading "Stopping By the Woods On A Snowy Evening" by Robert Frost Illustrated by Susan Jeffers It's December in the great North and I am sitting here still waiting for snow outdoors to go with my unit study LOL!We are using the lap book ideas from Homeschoolshare.com I am new to Lapbooking and this website has alot of neat ideas.
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 had always heard the last two lines of the poem and never knew they were from Robert Frost. My favorite poem is The Road Not Taken.
