Words of Wisdom

I have always had a relationship with words; I started reading when I was 2 years old.
Life is about journeys, and so is this poem. I thought it would be particularly appropriate for my life and my blog.

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;        5
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,        10
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.        15
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.


  1. I love this poem. Poetry is such a wonderful way to speak & communicate.

    Do you also write some of your own?

    1. I agree!
      In the past I have written some poetry, but am not really fond of writing it myself. I prefer to write essays, and stories. I am quite in love with stories it seems; that's why I love opera, stories set to classical music!
