This famous and beautifully written poem by Frost found below is not what it seems. Many scholars have debated the true meaning of this poem. In fact, most scholars believe that there can be one of two interpretations. I believe that there is a third interpretation and that this third one is the correct one.
Please take the time to read and reflect on the poem and then take the poll. I think that you might be surprised by what others think is the true interpretation of this great poem.
The Road Not Taken (Robert Frost, 1920)
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 marked 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.
