I Took The Road Less Traveled

a traveler's playbook from Robert Frost

Author: Hugh Bollinger/Monday, August 19, 2013/Categories: adventure

"The Road Not Taken", by Robert Frost, could be the ultimate playbook for a traveler:

Rural Road (credit: SWP Media)

"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."
