The Road Not Taken

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

    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.

    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.

    the beauty of poetry is that like art or music we read, hear and see what us as individuals want to do so. it evokes in us what it evokes in the poet.we are all poets, artists and to a degree musiciancs.robert frost was a uncomplicated man and he wrote what he saw. it is us who want to see more in his words. I THINK HE ENJOYED THIS ASPECT AS MUCH A WRITING HIS WORK...oops sorry for the caps, oh well theyre there now. suppose they will be annylised too! 'and I' took the one less travelled by' why why? why not! !
