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

    This is one of the best poems of all time. I heard it in the 9th grade and I have never forgotten it. It has inspired me to take that road not taken.

  • Dawn Swinnie (3/25/2009 2:13:00 PM)

    I love this poem, one of my absolute favorites. I could listen to someone quote this all day long

    Re; Ms.Haskell's earlier post.
    well as it was kind of referred to me, i guess i should respond.
    Many a time, i have thought long and hard about the mesage/point of a poem and indeed have come up with some wacky conclusions.
    Then frustrated, have done some research, and been a little surprised at the result.
    For example: Frost intended this as a private joke for a friend, who by the way, didn't get the joke...
    This is not my favorite Frost poem, but i can understand why this poem has attracted circa 69 comments on this site.
    I read poems, for the same reasons i read books....images, entertainment and sometimes education(i.e.a point) if it's not rammed down my throat by a bigoted, homophobic author who thinks he/she can change the world in 12 lines.
    By the way, i don't include Frost in that category.
    Hugs.

    I am not sure the true meaning of this poem. I read the poem in my English class, and if my teacher's interpretation isn't wrong, he doesn't take the road less travel by but the same old road. You can see the beginning of the last stanze'It shall be....'

    oh by the way, my teacher said this poem was made to trick people. I don't know if you are tricked or my teacher is tricked

    A poem which summerises the uniqueness in every human's life.

    Great poem! A poem with wisdom in its words, flowing with knowledge and sharing. Frost tells about his choosing a path less taken (less traveled by) and in the end, it has made all the difference. Sometimes, in our society today, this road less taken, are choices involving a lot of risks, only few dare take it. The two paths may represent two choices in a very crucial decision. Once taken, there is no turning back. In some part in the last, Frost seems to be regretting something. It is not directly pointed out that he regretted the path he chose but he is a bit sad in the inevitability of that crucial decision on one's life.

  • Archana N (12/15/2008 12:57:00 PM)

    I love the way the poet looks at future and importance of making decisions. Its just a momentary decision that alters our lifetime. We always pause to take a decision, but that pause seems endless, with the array of oppurtunities arising in every bend of life

  • Elbert Matt Loubser (12/15/2008 8:16:00 AM)

    Ah! It is good to read an old classic. Frost really is a superb poet. The tail of this poem a very popular quote. I wonder what this man would have done if he had to choose between walking over a bridge and swimming over the river...
