The Road Not Taken - Poem by Robert Frost

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

    I do agree with David Warnock. Frost clearly stated that he looked down one road To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, just as fair. There is a hint of fear, when Frost finally decided to take The other road- Of which he decides, years later, to tell his story in a way that makes him deceptively powerful.

    He simply made an excuse that he took the One less traveled by because it was less trodden. In actuality, he took that road because it was grassy, and perhaps, an easier road to take.

    Amazing poem... (Report) Reply

    It will mean different things to different people based upon their bushel basket of life's experiences - and this meaning may change from year to year for that person. That is the beauty of art in that the creator can create a dialogue of meaning with each of us - each a little different. I celebrate no grand unified theory of what might be the right interpretation. (Report) Reply

    I like to believe that the poem is about making a difference. You might regretted the outcome, but you couldn't changed it. What you know is at least you have decide your own path, and make a difference. (Report) Reply

    What i see first is the tittle the road NOT taken instead the one being taken, but still frost, through his NOT explains both of them.he is brave to say i marked the first for another day. Cant understand why in the last stanza he used the pessimistic term sigh.That might be personal. (Report) Reply

    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

    Every day there is a challenge to choose a road. The author has dared us to be different and go for the unknown path (Report) Reply

    This beautiful poem about the choices we make in life still applies almost fifty years after the death of Robert Frost. Great visionary, great poet. (Report) Reply
