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

    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

    Never trust a narrator in a Frost poem. And more importantly, never assume it is Frost speaking.

    This narrator admits that there is no difference between the paths. They've been worn about the same and they're both covered in leaves. He later tells people that he took the road less traveled by, which is basically like flipping a coin and when it lands face down, saying I chose 'tails.' It's not about how to choose correctly. It's about how we look back at the choices that we have made. (Report) Reply

    Maybe don't follow the herd, be an independent thinker. The path the herd follows can sometimes lead to death. Don't go with the norm, be exceptional and stand out. (Report) Reply

    I took the wrong road thirty years ago. I suggest that everyone view his roads carefully before proceeding. Patty Sullivan (Report) Reply

    It feels better insane when poets don't explain their lines, more often than not explanation tend to be clue-less or rather manipulated. (Report) Reply
