The road not taken- 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 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’s classic poem is one of my favourite poems in the world. Thousands of people have tried to analyse the poem, some of them have written thesis and thick academic volumes based on this little poem.

I’m not going to try to analyse the poem, I’m just putting this for you to enjoy the awesome talent of Robert Frost. Let me know your thoughts on the poem.

PS: I’ve finally written the next installment in the HIV chronicles that I’ve running on my blogspot blog. Check it out HERE.
