The Road Not Taken
Sunday, April 3, 2005

I'm sure many of you are familiar with Robert Frost's poem, The Road Not Taken. I was about fourteen when I read this poem for the first time. It inspired me then and it still inspires me today. I wanted to post it and let others read it for the first time or read it again. Maybe someone else can find a bit of inspiration in his poem like I have.

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.
