The Road Not Taken


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    The poem “THE ROAD NOT TAKEN” by Robert Frost has an interesting theme, because he wrote this poem thinking about his friend Edward Thomas, who went to the first war in 1916. I liked a lot this poem, for the reason it makes me reflect about the choices in my life, and it makes me understand that we will find some contradictions in our life, and then we have to choose a way; a “road”; and thus, face the challenges arisen from our choices. I notice the poem brings us an element of suspense in its interpretation, thus, when you make a decision in your life, you will think about what might have happened if you had “gone” the other way. We may develop a variety of thoughts, because the poem is rich in images, then you can approximate and develop your interpretation according to the words you read. I may observe the poem is related to people´s stages of life, and the author uses the seasons of the year to achieve this kind of comparison.
    Thank you FROST for this reflexive and beautiful poem. (Report) Reply

    This poem is actually about how our choices do not matter and things happen. An example of this would be when Robert Frost says, Though as for that the passing there, Had worn them really about the same, . This means that the road were basically the same. He also states this when he discusses how they equally lay. (Report) Reply

    I took the road most traveled.
    The other that dipped at the horizon;
    for I was sure a crowd would keep me warm
    For i was sure not to loose my self.
    Albeit to you Mr. Frost
    I say thank you,
    your journey and the journey of those like you
    make whole the map that leads to eternity. (Report) Reply

    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference....... Got that (Report) Reply

    while recited the poem in my mind along with the video record I was in a perfect emotion of soothing effect and peace in my mind and no doubt this is not telling a bit of exaggeration but a fact I felt. This poetess have shown her brilliance of poetical talent in few lines where the best of path the diverged roads in the wood selected that I feel is the path of poetry the rare people with gifted talent only can select. Thank you poet in having got such a poem in the mind and also in the media on our attention as readers. (Report) Reply

    I recommend my poems as a contrast to the above: The Cubic Wood, a longer poem, as well as Escape and Do Not Follow in the Footsteps.

    They are available on my profile. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
