Artist's Description

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.

Robert Frost – 1923 – “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening”
This poem was also used in the film “Telefon” (1977) as a code phrase to activate sleeper agents

These last lines of Robert Frost’s poem “Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening” describe my own feelings when I see the deep Canadian forests in British Columbia.

I think of times when I was a child and believed that magic could be found behind every trunk, in every shadow, under every bit of moss; of times in the woods, when I would just stand there in awe, listening to the stillness. Each moment was so precious …

Then I ‘hear the clock ticking’ and I move back into the noise …
“I have promises to keep, and miles to go before I sleep.”

Des Waldes Dunkel zieht mich an,
doch muss zu meinem Wort ich stehn …
und Meilen gehen,
bevor ich schlafen kann.
