A Message From Robert Frost

Thought I post today a grand poem from Robert Frost , one of the great minds & poets of the 20th Century, with this one of his famous verses "The Road Not Taken", that contains images & a message still very relevant today. Take it as a "mental map" that touches the universal in us all, that may help ease the nervousness & longing that drives us all a little "crazy" in this our modern World & way of life.


“THE ROAD NOT TAKEN”

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller,
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 travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
