The Road Not Taken

By Robert Frost (this link leads to a post on Poetry Foundation about 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.

This poem influenced me while I was young. I wanted to choose my way carefully.

What poem, author, novel or writing influenced you and in what way?

    I always have to read that poem when I get the opportunity. Is that a path for excess water?

    • Yes, it is for excess water, but I didn’t know this when I published my post. I showed my husband the photo a few hours later and asked him why so many places had a stone path in their landscaping. He told me that the path is made of river rock and the purpose for it is water drainage. Before the heavy rain that fell, I would have thought, “What water?” Thank you for your insightful comment.
