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.
