3.9 The Road Not Taken by 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 Ió
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

3.9 The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

Q 1: What does the poet wish he could do?
Take both roads. Travel both roads.
Make a choice.
Change many decisions he has made.
Have a sign tell him which way to go.

Q 2: Some people think Frost implies he is disappointed in his choice. What line might tell us this?
And sorry I could not travel both.
And perhaps having the better claim.
I took the one less traveled by.
I should be telling this with a sigh.

Q 3: What might be the meaning of this poem?
Life is confusing.
Life is not fair.
It doesn't matter what choices we make.
We most all live with the choices we make.

Q 4: What was one of the things that made the choice of which road to go difficult?
The roads were very similar.
There were so many reasons to go down each path.
They both ended up in the same place.
They both were beautiful.
