A Free Spirit

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, 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 marked the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads 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.

~Robert Frost

Bentley ~ let's just keep forging our own path together.

Susan and Bentley


  1. Beautiful photos Susan..
    I too have long followed the road less traveled and while it is sometimes lonely I wouldnt change my decision to do so.

  2. Love the poem and the photos go perfectly with it. xo

  3. I have always love Robert Frost. Love this poem. The pictures are just perfect for the poem. I too have taken the road less travelled and I believe that I am so much richer for it.
    Have a great day ;-) Forge on my friend, forge on ~

  4. Hi Susan. Love Robert Frost and your photos are just beautiful. This is my kind of post..Happy Thursday..Judy

  5. we in NH love Robert Frost he taught English at the college here.

  6. Gotta love Robert Frost. Lovely
    and I loved all the fall decor you put with it.
    Fall is such a lovely time of year.

  7. I love all this fall color. And this poem is one of my favorites. I know that I took the path less traveled, and my life has been blessed.

  8. Your photo's are beautiful AND I love your blog background. I don't know how to do that yet..or make a header but I'm trying to learn.
    I think I took the road less traveled also...but it was worth it. It really was. Your post made me pause and think for a moment. There has been a lot of tears and loss but the good outweighs the bad greatly. I would do it all again. At my age I've become very aware of the final curtain and that I don't have years and years to do things. And it really does give one pause. :) but a nice one.
    Hugs and love,

  18. I have always wondered why he wrote, "I will be telling this with a sigh" if he didn't regret the path less traveled.
