And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood

    This poem is not in fact about the supposed merit of taking the road less traveled. It's really about reevaluating the choices you've made in life, and hoping, sometimes wistfully, that you've made the best decisions in the end. That is the dilemma the speaker faces at the end of the poem. (Report) Reply

    I found this poem on a spiritual journey. A road at times it seems less traveled by. That for me has made all the difference. Praise the Lord! (Report) Reply

    It is the roughest path that leads to victory; choose the way of life that seems difficult to live and you will never regret doing so. Thank you so much, Robert Frost. (Report) Reply

    But that's not what the poem says. Re-read the second stanza.

    A book title, 'The Road Less Treavelled' is probably based on this excellent poem. - Pity about the book, what an insult to a magnificient poem. Frank (Report) Reply

    This has to be one of the most wrongly interpreted poems of all time. (Report) Reply

    The author was torn between two choices in life...just like many of us...our choices always make a difference! (Report) Reply

    And having perhaps the better claim.Because it was grassy and wanted wear...Yet knowing how way leads on to way I doubted if I should ever come back this is a great poem! (Report) Reply

    We all make our own unique choices and look back later on, am sure with the same feelings. There is no turning back in life, ever.Paths seem to have a mind.

    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    Then took the other, as just as fair,
    And having perhaps the better claim

    I shall be telling this with a sigh
    Somewhere ages and ages hence:
    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
    I took the one less traveled by,
    And that has made all the difference.

    Tell me anyone bout my poem, isn't it's more secluding to find you to another trademark hidden secret end that mesmerizes u to ur distinct means to claw in more sublimity of choices, yet fail and yet the world staggering and u trying to find in onething hardly easeable to ur innermost access.

    ABAAB. Very consistent.

    It'snot just the rhyme or paraphrases u look at while u read, Iit'sthe Iinner sense that produces the limelight identity of anything but the grasp within the bog for the eternal spherical identities, sans no bog nothing can be the existences, power of thoughts are just the roads that fear no destiny or edge that is circumscribed with.
