The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

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.

By- Robert Frost

  1. My favorite poem of all time.

  2. My favorite poem of all time and ever and quoted all the time and a wonderful photo to go with it.

  3. I just love Robert Frost. And beautiful photo!

  4. I love this poem. I learned it back in school in Canada and was so inspired by it then. To this day, I often think about this poem and have lived my life by these words – no lie. How else do you think I ended up in Hong Kong for 5 years, and now live in Poland? The road less travelled, indeed 😉

      We had to learn it at school too… It’s the only one I remember to this day and it really hasn’t been that many years.
