Robert Frost, We Love You

27 Sep

Remember this one?  Everybody knows the first couple of lines, but how long has it been since you read the whole thing?  

To me, it’s perfect.  Exquisite.  It will never stop knocking my socks off… for its imagery and metaphor and balance and wondrous wistfulness.   

I daresay, no blogger would dare mess with it - it’s just too perfect.  


The Road Not Taken
by Robert Frost

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.
