The Road Not Taken

Embedded image from another site


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry 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 shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I--
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

it is always an experience taking the less traveled road.
There are so many things to see.
My last trip across the states took me about 3 months on back roads all the way. It is one of the better ways to see the land and meet the people.
The poetry of Robert Frost...you just do not see words used as well as he did too often. Thanks for posting it.
a great classic thumbs up
