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.

Robert Frost

– Be still sad heart and cease repining;
Behind the clouds the sun is shining,
Thy fate is the common fate of all,
Into each life a little rain must fall,
Some days must be dark and dreary.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

______________________________

Into each life a little rain will fall,
but if you have a friend,
you can bear it all,
for a friend is an umbrella,
to hold above your head,
and help you think about,
the sunny days instead.

Into each life a little sun will shine,
but if you have a friend,
it will always be fine,
for if you can share the sunny times,
with a friend that will be grand,
as you talk and walk together,
securely hand in hand.

Into each life a little wind will blow,
but if you have a friend,
to whom you can go,
your friend can help to guide you,
can help you make the choice,
by offering their view,
and adding a new voice.

Into each life like leaves
things will fall,
but if you have a friend,
you know that you can call,
they’ll always steer you clearly,
when their counsel’s sought,
for a friend is like a safety net,
in which you will be caught.

Into each life a friend will come to you,
for if you have a friend,
you’ll know what to do,
when a problem shows itself,
for a friend is there to share,
to offer an opinion,
and show that someone cares.

Into my life my friend came as you,
for I know I have a friend,
to share experiences old or new,
in the rain, sun, wind or fall,
who is loving, loyal and most true,
that sees my best qualities,
and knows I am their friend too.
