A Poem About A Famous Poem
by Vernon Waring
Who wrote these famous lines? I know.
His name is Frost. How apropos!
The poem has woods and a lake,
A farmhouse, horse, and falling snow.
There's also a harness bells' shake,
A sweep of wind, and downy flake.
Though some say symbols do abound,
Frost wrote it for remembrance sake.
His rhyme scheme's difficult yet sound.
How he labored to put it down -
A work with a majestic sweep,
Simple, yet so deeply profound.
The final words are very deep.
They speak of promises to keep,
And a journey that will end in sleep,
And a journey that will end in sleep.
