Robert Frost’s poem Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening always features strongly in favourite poem lists. My journey from knowing of it and vaguelyknowing it, to being smitten by it, came about by courtesy of the Scottish singer-songwriter Jackie Leven. I found his beautiful setting of the poem on the album Creatures of Light and Darkness (2001), and recorded it for my own Waiting For the Word CD.
