I think the poem is great it made me really think about how in life you
usually have two roads and must decide on which one to take. I love things
like that because it really makes your mind start thinking about yourself
and the decisions you've made.

I believe that Frost feels lonely. He talks about how he looks down the
road in both directions and sees nothing all the way down to the bend in
the road. Frost is using his poetry to express his feelings in real life.

This is a poem by Robert Frost that can be interpreted in many ways. There
is an ambivalence in interpreting the poem and in recognizing the writer at
a place in life in which a decision is being made. It is not specified
whether or not the journey is a spiritual one or whether the journey is
simply about life direction, but I think it is about both. Sometimes in
life the choices we make will have consequences and impacts, but in taking
a risk we will be able to arrive at a place of achievement or
enlightenment, and that in order to arrive anywhere the path we take may be
as important as the place we end up at.

In this poem, it seems as if Robert Frost is talking about when in life,
you have the choice to go one of two ways, not knowing what the outcome of
both are, it is a tough decision. No matter which road you choose to take,
you will always be curious as to know what would have been, if you had
taken the other path. It is better to not stay in the past, but to look to
the future, because you cannot change the past. So it does not matter
whether or not the other road would have been a better choice.

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.

carl sandburg is known for writing about the true meaning of life. In this
essay Chicago it shows how fast pace and rugged this city is and how
everyone wants to blame other people for the problems in the city. He
depicts the city of being fast pace and that he isnt enjoying it. Maybe he
wants to get out of Chicago and into a new city and find out what real
happiness in life is all about

In the poem, The Road Not Taken, I think that Frost is writing about what a
lot of us wonder about in life, what would of happened if we took the other
road? Frost chooses the path that a leader would take, not a follower. He
seemed like he ended up choosing the right path and was very happy in the
end.

In this poem the author explanes that he had seen two paths and took the
one that looked nicer because, he had thaught that many people had travled
on it.near the end he relized that both paths were the same and i it realy
matter what one he choosed. In the end the one he took was the one that
many did not travel on.

The traveler had a choice to make in which path to follow, as we often do
in life. He knew he was not going to be able to follow both roads so he
based his decision on not following the crowd. He was very pleased with his
choice and lived a happy life not regretting anything. He showed courage by
doing what he thought best for himself and not letting the pressure of
others influence his choice.
