Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that, the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

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.

Committment, that is probably what is required to take the "path less traverse", which can assure fulfilment. Thanks for the referal.

"All is dark as deep and night

Ihave miles to go before I sleep

I have miles to go before I sleep"

Another wonderful piece of poetry from Frost. Frost is nice.

Even Shelly, Longfellow and Stevenson used to be interesting in School.

Poetry about the "maid" by Longfellow is interesting to those who love romance.

Bare footed came the begger maid"

In  robe and crown the King stepped down

to meet and greet her all the way"

I really agree with all whom fever to poem or not .Ya right our Indian poems or poets are also good.That was not my mean ...I just want to express my feelings regarding this poem....See a poet never fix with a one country .Whole world is his home so that time his writing platform  is wide .

According to some people the road not taken has in it a few thorns so stay away from them but The road not taken is not a fantasy.

Take a leap of faith. ... Don't be afraid to travel the road less traveled because you don't know when it will be converted into your mail-stone.so just have faith and start your journey .

The poem depicts decision making. The poem shows that life will probably not allow him the choice to return, even if he should wish to. Therefore by treading on a path less travelled by, he has made a choice that has chalked out his future.

One take the path chosen. It is so wonderful not to walk the same way others do.

That is right, I have managed my life to like it and I'm proud of what I lived. Now I'm geting old and I am not ashamed when I look backwards.

I wish the same for al of you. A friend of mine used to say "be good if you cannot be good be careful!..."

 

Regards from France .

Sorry Manju, even though this is a great poem.. I yhink there are a lot more poems and poeta that you may come across who have written and inspired a fair lot. In India Agarkar (Freedom fighter) has written some really inspiring poems that has awakened a state in its freedom fight.

If you read some of Harivanshrai Bachchanjis peotry you will be blown. Robert Frost is no doubt good. Thanks for the referral. :))

Madam,

I am sorry to support you this time. It is not fare to grade it as "best" or "amazing". It should not be treated as best or amazing simply because it has been written by an English poet. I have enjoyed several compositions in Hindi also which are capable of easily supersed the subjected poem. Further, simplicity of expressions carries highest score for any poem or composition.

though a comparison is not the fare thing amongst the good peots, yet its tough to rate 'one' best and another not, reason there are several works of people, out of of which one may be 19 another be 20.... so this poem.... for me not the best......

I would agree that this is an interesting poem. But 'amazing' is somewhat too much. This is a poem that ends in a cryptic manner; that is, speaking of dilemmatic situation in life and leaving it without any logical solution.

At one point the road divides itself into two in a fork-like manner. The dilemma is about which way to go, as both the ways are not attractive. What appears to be less traveled is taken. And, that makes all the difference.

Now by this what the poet says? It made all the difference; but was it positive or negative? Was it advantageous or disadvantageous? All the difference means only that the difference was substantial. You can say it when you are markedly happy or unhappy about the outcome.

Simply because you choose a less traveled road, you would not necessarily strike gold; it is also true that because you choose to go by trodden path, you may miss something wonderful. So whichever way you choose, you wonder if it is the right choice.

About this poem, Robert Frost has said on August 23, 1953: "One stanza of 'The Road Not Taken' was written while I was sitting on a sofa in the middle of England: Was found three or four years later, and I couldn't bear not to finish it. I wasn't thinking about myself there, but about a friend who had gone off to war, a person who, whichever road he went, would be sorry he didn't go the other. He was hard on himself that way."

In the absence of specific message or guidance, I am unable to share the opinion of my learned friend Manju Dagar that this poem is amazing. But, however, it is interesting and thought provoking indeed; thanks for having referred it to me.
