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

    Well-written and very philosophical. I very much like this poem, as well as many others of Robert Frost'. I like the simple meaning of his poems, and also the meaning that has comforted me through some very ruff times. This poem is amazing in it's deep meaning and, when we studied it in school, it taught me much and I am probably a much better person (at least better educated!) . (Report) Reply

    The poem is very well-written. It is philosophical. Robert Frost tells us that we can choose any path we can in life. In his poem, he has made a hard adult decision, and he chose the road less travelled. He chose the right path. Thus, he tells us we can take another path, as well. (Report) Reply

    A highly philosophical poem. Forst gives us a philosophy that we are free to choose but we do'nt really know beforehand what we are choosing between. I love Robert Forst. Forst's poems start with pleasure and ends with wisdom... (Report) Reply

    One of my all time favorites. I heard it read aloud and it is even better. The cadences are extraordinary. The medium is the message. The message is not all that complicated - however, this is one of the finest examples of what poetry should be. The sound and the meaning intertwined. It soars. (Report) Reply

    The road we take can change everything.
    Take a look at my new poems, for michael hicky
    And, boy to a man. Both true storys. Read them
    And tell me what road would you have taken. (Report) Reply

    The Bite Not Taken

    Two dogs emerged in the woods
    And sorry I could not run from both
    And remain safe, seconds I stood
    And looked one as much as I could
    Till where its canines had 2 inches grown

    Looked the other, I was dead ’twas crystal clear,
    For it had perhaps the sharper cane,
    Because it was bigger and wanted prey;
    Though as for the standing there
    Had made them look about the same.

    And both growling that morning I feigned
    Their canes ready to get a piece of me.
    Oh, I Usain Bolted out of their way!
    Not knowing where the road led
    I doubted if they would ever get me.

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two dogs emerged in the woods, and I -
    I took the Usain Bolt Challenge,
    And that's the reason I’m still a'ight. (Report) Reply

    Frost is my favorite poet. I have tried many times to imitate his poems. Please read this: http: // (Report) Reply
