Two roads diverged in a wood, and I –
I took the one less travelled by,

And that has made all the difference.
– The Road Not Taken

The 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.
– Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening

Robert Lee Frost, America’s best-loved poet and four-time winner of the Pulitzer Prize, is recognized the world over as the writer of these inspiring lines from The Road Not Taken and Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening. As an ardent admirer of RF, I wanted to share the other poems, the lesser known ones, all as simple and as deeply philosophical.
