The Road not Taken


The Road not Taken

The poem tells us the importance of choice in man's life. A man has to make choice at turn of life. It can make all the difference to his life. Once the poet was travelling alone. He reached a point where the road diverged into two different directions. He was in a fix to decide which road to take. Finally he decided to take the less travelled road. And this choice made all difference.

The Road Not Taken BY- Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller; 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,
