The Road Less Traveled

IMG_5195Benedetto and I strolled along a lovely wooded path, enjoying the autumn colors.  As we did, I could not help but think of this poem by Robert Frost.  May all of us be bold enough to follow the right path, whether we seem to walk it alone or in the company of others….


Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,IMG_5196
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,

IMG_5197And 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.
