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.

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.

Lynch illustrates Robert Frost’s classic poem with moody, snow-filled watercolor and gouache landscapes. . . . Rendered in a palette of blues and greens, Lynch’s illustrations artfully match the quiet, building depth of Frost’s work.
—Publishers Weekly

Lynch has done a marvelous job slowing the pace of the poem down by spreading its text out in small pieces and augmenting the rich language with illustrations, which will make it easier to absorb the sensory details so quietly evoked by the words. . . . a gorgeous rendering that will bring the poem to life for a new generation and even encourage young poets to stop and notice their world with a lyrical, illustrative lens.
