I’ve started reading his 2007 memoir Promises to Keep: On Life and Politics (click here to view all my posts about this book) and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to learn about the Democratic Nominee for Vice President.
Since Biden took the title of his book from a line from Robert Frost’s famous poem, “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening,” I thought I’d share it here:
Whose woods these are I think I know.
His house is in the village, though;
He will not see me stopping here
To watch his woods fill up with snow.
My little horse must think it queer
To stop without a farmhouse near
Between the woods and frozen lake
The darkest evening of the year.
He gives his harness bells a shake
To ask if there is some mistake.
The only other sound’s the sweep
Of easy wind and downy flake.
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.
