Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Dark And Deep

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.

Robert Frost

    1. I am happy that you are enjoying it. My proofing wasn’t so hot in some parts, but I thought the story was. It’s got a fairy tale quality that I enjoyed. Your comment really picked me up this morning and refreshed my belief in myself. Many thanks.


    2. I read your review and agree. I have been revisiting it with an editor’s eye and the pernickety perfection of a proof-reader. I am so pleased that you like the story. I am about ready to have a go at publishing the third.

      1. You’re welcome for the Amazon. I felt bad having about bringing up the editing stuff. I make a point of being completely honest. At least that way if I tell you I liked something you know I really did.
        What I liked about Burials was the growth of all the characters, the continuing story and the introduction of new ‘mythological’ characters besides The Piper. Also how the group deals with ethics of helping vs not helping and what to do with a traitor. It reminds me of The Stand in a lot of ways. Of course, I believe The Stand is the greatest post -apocalyptic, good vs evil book ever written. I think you’d agree.
        I’m excited to read the third book when it’s ready. I want to find out what happens with Peter and Dr Hope and of course, Michael.

      2. I do love the comparison to KING. And yes, the editing happened in the way that it did because I was rushing to just publish; no due diligence. I think the third book is the best so far. Again, honesty is always welcome. Otherwise it’s a lie.
