THE ROAD NOT TAKEN

My Punkin discovered a new love last week - Robert Frost poetry. She memorized "The Road Not Taken" and decided to do a painting of the scene depicted in the poem.

Don't you love her new no braces smile!???!

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.
~Robert Frost~
