Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    I recommend my poems as a contrast to the above: The Cubic Wood, a longer poem, as well as Escape and Do Not Follow in the Footsteps.

    They are available on my profile.

    Never trust a narrator in a Frost poem. And more importantly, never assume it is Frost speaking.

    This narrator admits that there is no difference between the paths. They've been worn about the same and they're both covered in leaves. He later tells people that he took the road less traveled by, which is basically like flipping a coin and when it lands face down, saying I chose 'tails.' It's not about how to choose correctly. It's about how we look back at the choices that we have made.

    Maybe don't follow the herd, be an independent thinker. The path the herd follows can sometimes lead to death. Don't go with the norm, be exceptional and stand out. (Report) Reply

    I took the wrong road thirty years ago. I suggest that everyone view his roads carefully before proceeding. Patty Sullivan (Report) Reply

    It feels better insane when poets don't explain their lines, more often than not explanation tend to be clue-less or rather manipulated. (Report) Reply

    Note the off beat, weak, fading metre of the last line. The first stress is on that and the line fades to the next stress on all and again fades to dif. And notice also the onomatopoeic effect of difference like the sound of air gently escaping from a floating balloon. It's a poem about bombast, bluster, beauty and opportunity squandered, , fumbling, poorly constructed decisions and, at the end, sinking and failure - not by a long shot, not about triumph and success. America, the great man is pulling your leg. (Report) Reply
