Dr. Kathryn Knowles » The Road Less Traveled

The Road Less Traveled

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 Iā€”
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

I first read Robert Frost's poetry as a young teen (in 8th grade, actually), and immediately recognized myself in these words. The many pathways of my life are nothing if not unusual. Today, the poem inspires me to encourage students to take an untraveled path and plunge into the adventure that is life.
