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

    Fantastic!
    I love it because it's like life... you may choose to take the path that not many have taken before, and you mayn't be able to take the other.

    A bzillion thumbs up! =)

    This has always been one of my favorite poems of Robert Frost's, I think for obvious reasons. The flow was perfect, the imagery was nice, the emotion was good but the main thing was the message, this message really had an impact on my life. How many of us have stood at the fork, looking down the easy path one way, the hard (lesser trod) path the other way, and decided to go down the easy road... the one less traveled by? I choose the roads less traveled by, myself, and that truly has made all the difference.

    P.S. Robert Frost was my single most influential poet while growing up and was the main reason I took to writing poetry. Though my favorite poet is Edger Allen Poe... Robert Frost had the most influence over me.

    The road not Taken is adout two path in life. He chose the one less travel to follow his dream.To go a different path in life.

    Have any of you taken the time to realize that the poem is one of more or less remorse? The poem is not about the road less traveled, it is about the road NOT taken. He isn't saying in the last line that he's glad, nor did he ever hint that either was less traveled, in fact he said 'Though as for that the passing there/Had worn them really about the same, ' Meaning both were traveled equally. And when he says 'I shall be telling this with a sigh/Somewhere ages and ages hence: ' he is saying somewhere down the line he's going to think to himself that perhaps he made the wrong choice even though he is trying to convince both him and others that it had made all the difference. Everyone should be able to understand this by simply reading it and not over analyzing it but taking each word at it's face value. But I suppose misinterpitation is expected when reading the words or a rhetorical geniouse.

    'And that has made all the difference...' Any person who has taken the road less travelled can hear the sigh within his heart when he reads these lines. You maybe lonely in this road but you made the choice and you will live with it

    This poem is beautifully crafted and the content familiar to everyone poems are personal and are what they are they touch others in different ways depending on personal experience
    and circumstance. Nothing is to be gained by pulling them apart if you enjoy reading a peiece and it touches your heart that is enough

    Timeless. That line is so universal, beyond compare.
