The Road Not Taken

I'm in a Robert Frost mood today . . .

     The Road Not Taken

 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 marked 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. 


  1. Great Poem!

    I just seen u live in woodstock. We lived there for about 3 yrs and just moved back home to NY.
    I miss Woodstock though. Especially now with the cold weather coming along.

  2. Ah, it's pretty right now! It was in the 50s this morning and it feels nice and cool.
