The Road Not Taken | Robert Frost | El Paso Texas

Pin It
I was looking through some old photographs of a road trip we did a couple of years back. I found these pictures and it reminded me of an old poem I use to like when I was in college. Robert Frost is one of my favorite poets. His intriguing way of describing something makes you feel drawn to his poems. Enjoy. 

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
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.
