The Road Less Traveled

A somewhat introspective thought for today.. and I hope everyone enjoys a little side trip.


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 onto 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 took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference

Robert Frost


  1. Haven't read that in a while, though I refer to it in thought and word from time to time. One of my favorites to be sure. I'm glad you blogged it.

  2. Thanks John...
    One of my favorites also, and a piece I always like to go back and re-read..
