    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

    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

    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

    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

    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
