Snowy Weekend Wisdom

I had a hard time deciding what to do for the return of Weekend Wisdom, a series consisting of poems, quotes, and scripture that will hopefully uplift your soul.  But considering an Alberta Clipper moves through tonight followed tomorrow by another round of Lake Effect Snow, this time with winds from the northwest, Robert Frost’s poem seemed very appropriate.

Since the winds will be from the northwest, I will get more Lake Effect Snow than normal (it usually loves the eastside more than us on the westside).  Combined total snowfall between the two storms is 3.5 – 8 inches.

So blessed and thankful I work from home as a virtual logistics call center representative.        😀

Photos are of the woods behind my house. They are from December 2013 and January 2014, stop back on Tuesday and I will have some up to date photos for you.

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

BY 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 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.

Tomorrow’s Wisdom is a lovely poem from Adelaide A Procter, who wrote the lovely poem I published at Thanksgiving.
