Blogtober Book Quotes | The Road Not Taken
Hello! Today I am back with another Blogtober Book Quote. Today I’m sharing Robert Frost’s iconic poem, The Road Not Taken. There’s just something about this poem that I have always appreciated it. While I realize this poem isn’t super seasonal, it just reminds me of autumn so much.
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, “The Road Not Taken”
While I haven’t always been the biggest fan of poetry, lately I’ve really come to enjoy and appreciate the beauty of it!
