The Road Less Travelled

Two Roads Diverge

 

 

 

 

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And since 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
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet, knowing how way leads onto way
I doubted if I should ever come back

I shall be telling this one day
Somewhere ages and ages hence
Two roads diverged in a wood
I took the one less travelled by
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost (1915)

Life is the sum of the choices you make.

(Full original poem entitled ‘The Road Not Taken’)

One Response to The Road Less Travelled

  1. I’ve encountered this work many times in the last fifty years but never had the aptitude to completely understand it. I would think I did then doubt my ability and now at seventy-three I finally think I do. Thank you for the opportunity to re-visit.
