The LuLac Edition #2344, January 30th, 2013

The late poet Robert Frost.


Yesterday was the 50th anniversary of the death of the great poet Robert Frost. Frost gave The Inaugural Poem at John Kennedy‚Äôs swearing  in just two years before. Frost was 88 when he died. Here is one of his classic poems.

The Road Not Taken
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 marked 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
