It was the end of the fall semester the end of a long evening lit class and the hands on the clock indicated 940 For those of you who aren t familiar with the term clock it was a circular device affixed to the wall to indicate timeIt was a Wednesday evening and I had two essays due the following day hadn t started either yet and I had a raging crush on a guy named Kurt who was meeting me after class to make out and who turned out to be a TOTAL LOSERBut let s get back to 940 and the class that would never end and my shaking right leg and my eyes that could not be averted from the clockThe professor was still at the front of the class silent now holding papers and an open book before himFor those of you who aren t familiar with the term papers they were an ancient form of keeping track of notes information and whatnot before laptopsAnd just as I was about to jam my thumb deep into my right eye socket from boredom and anticipation of release the professor allowed the room to fall into a silent confusion before he almost whispered Whose woods these are I think I knowHe paused The class stopped moving in irritation I averted my eyes from the clock He continued 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 ueer He stopped reading and rubbed his chin as though he was pulling at a beard and repeated My little horse HmmmAnd continued To stop without a farmhouse nearBetween the woods and frozen lakeThe darkest evening of the yearHe paused and repeated this line The darkest evening of the year He gives his harness bells a shake He stopped here and uietly pulled at his fake beard again His harness bells eh To ask if there is some mistakeThe only other sound s the sweepOf easy wind and downy flakeThe woods are lovely dark and deepBut I have promises to keepAnd miles to go before I sleepAnd miles to go before I sleepHe turned away to set his book down on his desk and uietly said Good night He did not turn back again to face usWe shuffled out of the room in a hushed reverence No poetry recitation by another person has ever affected me This illustrated version of Frost s famous poem captures the magic of that evening for me
