And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    its very wonderful. I think that important subject in a poem is it's language and not it's meaning and concept. I am an Iranian poet and likes this site. (Report) Reply

    this is an inspirational piece... this would be first time reading this poem, but not the first time hearing... love this poem bc its abt me-i always travel the road less taken bc thats just me-not wanting to be like everyone else and not wanting to take the same road you took, bc i know i will get a different result and betterit i follow (my) road, less travelled (Report) Reply

    my father died recently and he liked to believe that if you lived your life in a good way that when you died you would have a chance to go back to some point in your life and choose a different road...when i was planning the funeral this poem came to me, out of nowhere.. (Report) Reply

    Interpret and judge if you shall but this is nonetheless a profound inspirational piece. (Report) Reply

    The road not taken is the road less traveled. And the road less traveled is more time spent on the xbox. I don't see a down side... (Report) Reply

    This is without doubt the most misread poem ever written. This is a very cynical poem. To paraphrase: I came to a fork in the road. They were both the same. When I am older, I will say I took the one less traveled. It is a poem about our gargantuan capacity for self delusion. (Report) Reply
