Road Not Taken
© by Robert Frost
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood
And sorry I couldn't travel both
And be one traveler I stood
And looked as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth.
Then took the other one just as fair
And having perhaps the better claim
Because it was grassy and wanted wear
Though as far as the passing there
Had worn them really about the same.
And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step and trodden black
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads onto 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 woods,
and I took the one less traveled by
And that has made all the difference.
