This poem has showed me that its not a road that you have to take
necessarily. It can also be the choice that you make like making a good
decision or a bad one. There is always the path that you want to take but
then there is the one that can inter fear and contort your decision. This
poem has truly opened my eyes to making a good choice on where my life is
headed.

I think that this poem is saying that we are free to choose but dont know
what we are choosing between. The title suggests anticipation of remorse.
It is "The Road Not Taken" which sounds a little strong.

This poem is very inspiring. It explains the decisions that you decide to
take in your life. You always have to make choices. If you choose to take
the harder path, then you will get more out of it, unlike everyone else
that usually takes the easy path.

The poem "The Road Not Taken", by Robert Frost to me expresses
individuality and imagination. In the poem, Frost speaks of a road with 2
paths to choose at one point, but this also occurs many times in life when
you ask yourself if you should do what everyone else is doing, or try out
something else. Frost's poetry was not like anyone elses, and i think in
this poem he wants us to be the same way.

in the poem "The Oft-Repeated Dream" by Robert Frost, he uses
personification to give the tree life like characteristics. In the poem
only one of the two children is afraid of the tree but it is in her dream.
She thinks the tree is trying to open the latch to the window of the room
where it can get in. He uses simile when he compares the tree to a little
bird at the window sill staring at the mystery of the glass.

in the poem "Chicago" by Carl Sandburg, Sandburg illustrates all the bad
things and flaws of the city chicago. He tells of how the city is
corrupted simply because it is full of corrupted people. There are
prostitutes luring the simple minded farm boys and there are gangsters
getting away free with murder. He tells about how chicago is far from a
Utopia which is the generalization that everyone has when they go there.
People think that because it is such a big business and it is the meat
packing industry of the world so everyone has the idea that it is the city
of opportunity. Carl Sandburg shows people through the poem what Chicago
really is.

"Chicago" by Carl Sandberg demonstrates Sandberg's respect and possible
fear of the city of Chicago. His use of apostrophe in this poem really
brings it to life. The use of adjectives also creates strong imagery and
reflection of Sandberg's outlook on the city.

The poem "I Carry Your Heart" by e.e. Cummings is short but sweet. It
expresses his deep love for someone or something. The Last stanza and the
last line rhyme. This creates an emphasis on the end of the poem, which in
my opinion, is the most important part of the masterpiece.

The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost is a poem that consists of strong
imagery and interesting diction. It ties in nature with individuality.
When Frost states that he took the road less traveled it reflects his
thoughts of individuality. Frost thinks that those who choose their own
path and are not swayed by the decisions of others are the most successful.

The poem "i carry your heart with me" by E.E. Cummings is saying how much
someone cares for someone and that they can't be without that person and
care very much for them. No matter where they are they will always be with
him because, he carries thoughts of that person with him all the time.
