In seventh grade English, we were given the assignment of memorizing a poem of "at least sixteen lines." First kid gets up: "Whose woods these are/I think I know..." Then the second... "Whose woods these are/I think I know..." About half a dozen kids in a class of about twenty all picked "Stopping By Woods on a Snowy Evening." By the time it was done, everyone else knew it by heart, too... Dpbsmith 18:03, 13 February 2007 (EST)

- I was surprised to learn that Frost dropped quickly out of college, though I suppose that's a career path for a poet. But then he taught as professor at Amherst College?! I bet he was the only professor lacking a college degree. I wonder if top professors thought as highly of Frost as the public did.--Aschlafly 18:09, 13 February 2007 (EST)
