The Road not taken

01 Mar 2007 on learning

One of my favourite poems by Robert Frost... and yes, it's something to think about. The road not taken in life...

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.
