Knitting Thoughts

So, I've been knitting socks for what seems like forever. I think I might take a break before I turn the heel.
 I have the perfect project to fill in the time. I want to knit the Sydney Carton Cowl from "A Tale of Two Cities" from "Literary Knits". I want to change the morse code knitting because I hate the ending of the book and I don't want to have to knit the "Far far better think I do" speech.
  I have a lovely shade of worsted wool in forest green so I am thinking of knitting a morse code cowl of a Robert Frost poem. I have it narrowed down to two, which one do you like?

Stopping By the Woods on a Snowy Evening

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 these 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.


The Road Not Taken

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry that I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I should be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the ones less traveled by,
And that had made all the difference.

I will probably just use the last stanza in either poem.
