Default The Road Not Taken By Robert Frost

This is a poem that I had to memorize for english. I liked it alot. It may even help you to do the right thing someday.:


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
and sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, 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 feet 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 travelled by,
and that has made all the difference

I really like that poem. I definately know what it's like to be "the traveller who took the road less traveled by" because I strongly think that if you always do what everyone else is doing then you won't be very unique or interesting at all.

Only hyms upon your lips...

Exactly and it also ties in with what my dad always tells me. "If you have two choices, one easy the other hard, the hard one is ussually the right one." In fact I would base most big desisions on what my dad said and what this poem says.

Glad to hear that there are other people who like it too. I was starting to think I was weird cause I was the only one in my class that liked it.

We always have to memorize it. I Gettysburg Address was a killer! No one memorized it. But yet again that's ot a poem.
