the poem says it all about life about choice.... how it can make a
difference... you can choose to follow you can choose to lead... you can
choose to embark on a whole new path and follow wherever it may lead... but
choose you must at the beginning before you make a discovery or being
discovered for missing

well .. I think it is one of the rare good stuff we have studied in poetry
courses and it always gave me a bit of melancholy after reading...can we
ever really choose anything and is it possible not to look back on it? and
is the road less chosen really the road less chosen???and who decides?

it is a very beautiful poem written by Mr.frost which tells us about his
own life and the difficulties he had to face in his life.

This poem is great. Possibly not his greatest work, but certainly my
personal favorite. Many a difficult decision has been made after reading
this poem- truly inspirational.

This poem is definitely a wonderful poem as we experience the similar
situations in our life.Life at the crossroads really become difficult for
us particularly when we have to be decisive.There are always two or more
roads in front of us and our decision shapes our destiny. This poem helps
us to think of the necessity of being decisive as it will ultimately shape
our destiny. "...Two roads diverged in a yellow wood ...." Really a
remarkable line .....

I first heard the poem in my English class, while in the States as an
excange student in 1978. I'm sure I've sent part of it to my dad... but i
didn't have the letter nor remembered of it, and searched the web. I'll
problably put in on a frame, on my living room. It means a lot to me.
