    The Road Not Taken – Robert Frost

     

    Read by Robert Frost Music by Chris Coleman – Robert Frost was an American poet who depicted realistic New England life through language and situations familiar to the common man. He won four Pulitzer Prizes for his work and spoke at John F. Kennedy‘s 1961 inauguration. – The Road Not Taken masquerades as a meditation about choice as the poet turns something as irrational as an “impulse” into a triumphant, intentional decision. Decisions are nobler than whims, and this reframing is comforting, too, for the way it suggests that life unfolds through conscious design. However, as the poem reveals, that design arises out of constructed narratives, not dramatic actions.

     

    Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.
    My apple trees will never get across And eat the cones under his pines, I tell him. He only says, “Good fences make good neighbors.”
    These woods are lovely, dark and deep, But I have promises to keep, And miles to go before I sleep, And miles to go before I sleep.
