Stopping by the Blog on a Planning Evening



Stopping by the Blog on a Planning Evening

Apologies to Robert Frost

Frost’s Poem “Stopping by the Woods on a Snowy Evening”


Whose night this is too well I know.
My laptop in the dark  aglow;
I will not be asleep soon I fear,
Plan with data the life I know.

My little cat must think it weird
That everyone else is aslumber here,
Once again sorting data to differentiate,
Challenged to do this each day of the year.

Much to do in these lessons I make,
Scant hours before I wake,
No other sound–my house now sleeps.
Sleep deprived habit I must break.

Yet these plans are lovely, data filled and deep,
with the data I must keep,
Spreadsheets to sort before I sleep,
Spreadsheets to sort before I sleep.

    I love it! Robert Frost has always been a favorite poet of mine and this was one of my favorites! Love the last lines! Very creative.
