Robert Frost Recites ‘Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening’ Today is the birthday of Robert Frost , who once said that a poem cannot be worried into being, but rather, “Like a piece of ice on a hot stove the poem must ride on its own melting.” Those words are from Frost’s 1939 essay, “ The Figure a Poem Makes ,” which includes the famous passage: To celebrate the 138th anniversary of the poet’s birth, we bring you rare footage (above) from PBS and the Poetry Foundation of Frost reciting his classic poem, “ Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening ,” in January of 1959, when he was 84 years old.

You can also listen to a four-part recording (below) of Frost reading a selection of his poems in 1956, courtesy of Harper Audio. : “The Road Not Taken,” “The Pasture,” “Mowing,” “Birches,” “After Apple-Picking,” and “The Tuft of Flowers.” “West-Running Brook” and “The Death of the Hired Man.” POETRY.

Poetry can and should be an important part of our daily lives. Poems can inspire and make us think about what it means to be a member of the human race. By just spending a few minutes reading a poem each day, new worlds can be revealed. Poetry 180 is designed to make it easy for students to hear or read a poem on each of the 180 days of the school year. I have selected the poems you will find here with high school students in mind. Listening to poetry can encourage students and other learners to become members of the circle of readers for whom poetry is a vital source of pleasure. HTI American Verse Project. Can I Have A Word?
