Read the Poem:
THE ROAD NOT TAKEN
By Robert Frost
Or, first you can read Gene's comments about the Poem
"The Road Not Taken" was my favorite poem
for many years. Of course it started with an actual experience rather
than with something symbolic. When I was much younger, my father,
my brothers and I were hiking on old roads in the woods.
We came to a fork; and unlike in the poem, we decided to take the one
that looked MORE traveled. It turned out to be a good hike;
and as I remember, we came out on the highway, and went back
to our car without retracing the road back to the fork.
But I always remembered the other road, and vowed that I would
come back again some day and follow it. Again, unlike the poem,
I DID! A few years later, after I had my own driver's license,
I dragged a girlfriend on that hike and followed that road.
It was LOUSY! The road just fizzled out and led to nowhere!
We had to go back the same way we came.
