Rating: 2.8

Perceiving the pathway to truth,
Was struck with astonishment.

"I see that none has passed here
In a long time."
Later he saw that each weed
Was a singular knife.
"Well," he mumbled at last,

"Doubtless there are other roads."

The poem is cynical, yes, but far more meaningful than “The Road Not Taken.“
