{Sunday Sayings} “The Road Not Taken” by Robert Frost

I am a bibliophile, a book lover, a lover of books! However you want to say it, I love to read. Some of the best written words often come from the classics {you know, the books you were forced to read in high school}. Not all teenagers appreciate the works of Shakespeare, Frost, Emerson, Whitman, Poe, etc., I am an eternal book nerd because even when I was a teenager, I loved the classics.

Robert Frost is one of my favorite classic authors; especially his poem, The Road Not Taken. Now that you’re an adult, and not forced to read the classics, how about taking some time for yourself today and reading this short poem? Grab a cup of coffee, soda, or tea and relax. It’s Sunday.

After you’ve read The Road Not Taken, tell me what you think  the poem is about. 

The Road Not Taken

Poem by Robert Frost

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 marked 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.

Can you identify with the words? Does anything in this poem apply to your life?  How did the poem make  you feel?
