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

    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

    The poem 'The Road Not Taken' belongs to the category of Frost's lyrics that contain a blend of 'inner lyric vision and the outer contemplative narration.' Apparently a plainly descriptive poem, telling about the poet's going one of the two roads lying before him, it conveys the retrospective musings of a person who has made a decisive choice between two alternatives, hesitation and vacillation between two alternatives. The poem presents a typical human situation comprising uncertainties, both of which seem to be very appealing. The poem was initially published in the Agust 1915 issue of 'The Atlantic Monthly' and was included in the volume Mountain interval brought out in 1916. (Report) Reply

    I love to read this poem when I'm trying to make the best choice. Sometimes you just don't know in least you take a chance but never take the less travel road. (Report) Reply
