The Road Not Taken

I love Robert Frost’s poetry. It is very different. Some of his poems are long, almost like stories. Story poems, if you like. I used to hear teachers read some of his poetry in grammar school umpteen years ago. But the one that always stayed in my mind my whole life was “The Road Not Taken.” This may very well be his most famous poem; I don’t know. But he lived an interesting life. You can read more about it here. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Robert_Frost.

However, for today I want to post this beautiful picture perfect for the Fall season that I found at this blog, http://heatheranastasiu.blogspot.com. I thought the photo she used was very appropriate for this particular poem. Here’s the photo and the poem!

Frost Two Roads Diverged Picture

The Road Not Taken

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.

Make it a great Fall day. Do something fun, creative, and enjoy living!
