NOW - Day 2

Today's prompt was: What's your favorite poem? (And if you don't have one, why?)

Luckily, I had one so I just have to share it and not a reason why I don't. :) It's a very popular poem and I'm sorry it's not more original....but I like it, ok?

The Road Not Taken
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 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. 



  1. Robert Frost..such a great choice|:) Love this poem and your blog!

  2. It's popular for a good reason! We used to have a recording of Robert Frost himself reciting this poem, I can't read it without hearing him in my head.


Thank you for leaving a comment. I love hearing from everyone! :)
