The Road Not Taken

Poem By Robert Frost

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.

I read, recently, that Frost wrote this for a friend he would take walks with. He said it was a joke. If he had told that to me, I would reply, " Mr Frost, you are such a fool you aren't even capable of recognizing, when you write something as a joke, you can't stop yourself from being brilliant.

This is life's poem...words written so true
Poets are scarce these days to write such poems about the rebirth of soul. Excellent.
