Day 14: Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Don't walk behind me; I may not lead.  Don't walk in front of me; I may not follow. Just walk beside me and be my friend.           Albert Camus

Bible Verse
I walk in the way of righteousness, along the paths of justice,   Proverbs 8:20

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening   Robert Frost
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 sounds 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.
