i like this poem a lot....but people need top stop saying,' it's about'
you can only say that if robert frost told you himself! say,'i think it's
about'. i know i have a lot of ideas but for all i know he could be writing
about which type of tomato sauce to buy for the dinner!! okay obvisouly
it's not quite like that but you get my point.....
love it!!!
one of my english coursework poems...one of my faviourtes and i'm always
coming up with new meanings every time i read it......

In the poem nothing gold can stay is a very short but meaningful poem. he
uses the line: "Her early leaf's a flower; But only so an hour," to show
that in the begging of something that you are doing seems so right and the

good thing to do but sometimes when u get to know the thing you are talking

about it isn't what you thought it was. The main point of this is that
things start off as plan but towards the end it is the total opposite from

what you thought it would be

The poem tells us that there are two kinds of road in life and we have the
freedom to choose which way to take. But oftentimes, we choose the easier
way which usually leads to damnation. Choosing the other will give us
ultimate happiness and satisfaction.

i read this poem i thought that we not go for that path which is very easy
weshould sometimes go for the difficult ones as by taking that we can
achieve what we want not by easier one.

The first time that I was reading Robert Frost poem The Road Not Taken was
because of an English class that I was taking and what made it worse was
that I had to memorize the poem. After memorizing the poem I liked it and I
understand what frost was saying. In life we must take more changes in
life.

The Road not taken is filled with irony and paradox, the ideas may be
contradictory, yet it is reasonable. Making the wrong decisions is always
the easiest way out and it is the way that most people choose. The moral
decisions are harder, and it is the less chosen. Every person wants the
easy way out. The great thing about doing the right way is that you learn
and doing the right thing causes long term happiness. Just as the American
society, we always try to do things the easy way as we try to fix the
world, however these things only give more problems. “Two Roads diverged in
wood, and I took the one less traveled by, and that made all the
difference. ”The paradox of this poem is the road being less traveled by,
is the road to life. The road traveled by the most is the road of death.
The path to death is easy, but deadly. The path to life is hard, but it is
fruitful.
