The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

March 26, 2006

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.

    To be as I was once…
    years back,
    free from debt
    and lacking wants.
    What now I have
    in one huge stack.
    *******************
    To be as pure
    as strait and strong
    with foot that’s sure.
    Oh! Silence this sweet song
    of heart’s that freely
    travel inside my mind.
    For now I have
    a job to find!

    Just playing around with a ditty or two. Enjoy your youthful days while you have them! But remain wise to the plundering ways of time lost or ill spent.
