Two Views In a Not-So-Yellow Wood

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.

Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken"

  4. Nature is so great! I can't wait to enjoy it more now that the weather is getting nice!Katherine

  5. I really like the black and white--I think it's because it really adds to the starkness of the image. Great shot!

    oh beth i LOVE this poem. i used it in yoga as our meditation once. the theme of the class was "Own your choices--Stay present in your choice, but take comfort with the knowledge that the next decision can be different if need be." i prefer the color here.

  7. I prefer the color picture by far ! I don't like black and white, it's depressing, lol !

  8. Very good Poem...I think I've read before, but this is a good reminder.Love the color.
