R is for Roads

The Road Less Traveled 

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,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that passing there
Had worn them really bout the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no steop 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.
--Robert Frost

The Strangest and Most Beautiful Roads in the World

I received these pictures in an email, and thought they were so amazing, that I had to share them. And, coincidentally, I needed something for my R post. Whew, that worked out well. 

Some of these roads I would be happy to travel. Others, not so much! I'm not much of a "less traveled road" kinda gal, unless I'm armed with a GPS. I have a fear of getting lost and never, ever finding my way back. (Hubby would agree. He is amazed at my lack of sense of direction.) 

And, if you would like to hear this poem in song, here it is. My community choral group sang this several years ago. (Sorry to say, this is not our group singing!)


  1. I liked the poem and always have done but couldnt see the pictures ???


  2. I loved Frost's poem but I too could not view the photos. Great R post however.

  3. I love backroads and byways. 'The Road Less Traveled' is one of my favorite poems. The pictures didn't work for me either. Thank you for your kind words.

  4. Uh oh mom, I was supposed to be proud of you for doing this all on your own. Let's look into this...I think I know what you did....

  5. That is one of my favorite poems. Great choice for "R"!

  6. Oh boy. I'm so embarrassed. This is what happens when I think I know what I'm doing, and do not consult my official blog advisor (Jennee) first! Maybe, I will re-post this later. The pictures are very cool.

  7. I would like to see the pictures. I love this poem. Have always loved it and its message. So I will be very anxious to see the pictures. Awesome post and I am glad to see I am not the only one with tech

  8. LOL! I was laughing at all of the comments (especially YOURS and your daughters!) -- I was going to write the same thing: Love poem, can't see the photos! I think I might have seen some of the photos you meant to come through though... I got an email similar to the one you got, I think. And don't feel badly about your sense of direction: I could get lost driving around the block! (and Have!)
