I go to a really cool school and my english teacher had us memorize the
poem and we had to recite it in front of the whole class ... i found myself
likeing the poem it is a wonderful poem to memorize!I have heard this poem
recited other ways like "2 roads diverged in a yellow wood and i took the 1
less traveled by state troopers" ...

although the two roads in the poem are diverging, they lead in different
directions. At the beginning they probably appear to be similar, but miles
away, they will grow farther and farther away from each other which
resembes to many choices we are faced with in life.we understand that one
decision in life can change everything. We are free to choose, but we do
not really know beforehand what we are choosing between. Our route is,
thus, determined by a choice and chance.also "The Road Not Taken" consists
of four stanzas of five lines. The rhyme scheme is ABAAB

will our teachers make a figure of us if we find all the figures of
speeches in all poems?if not why tire yourself with all those nonsense
instead of enjoying the poem itself?

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?

own life and the difficulties he had to face in his life.
