Both I and my wife keep coming across the following lines, but have been unable to find their origin. Can anyboby help with either author or title?.

" the woods are promising and deep,
but I have miles to go before I sleep"

Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening
by Robert Frost

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's 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.

To ask if there's some mistake.
Yes, there is!
It should be;
To ask if there is some mistake.
And now it scans!
