Last week was UNESCO world poetry day and in the morning I spent a while in my car at the office parking lot listening to some funny poems on the radio. And yes, I admit it, I’m a little bit of a romantic (I really am!) and so that day I was in the mood again to read a few poems.
This led to my April favorite: tadaaa… a poem. Here it is:
The Road Not Taken
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.
Do you have a favorite poem yourself? I would be delighted if you posted it in the comments right here… 🙂
I wish you a wonderful spring time!
