error in first stanza

This poem comes up as a first result on some search engines. But the first
stanza is wrong. The third line is incorrect and should be completely
removed. Sadly, this incorrect version has been copied from some site
(yours?) and pasted onto many other sites with the same blunder.

Misgiving

Oh, I beg to differ on SO many levels. For one who does not live in
"American Society" you are certainly quick to draw conclusions about
something you are ignorant of. The piece uses the leaves as a metaphor for
the passage from childhood into adulthood and then to the afterlife. Beging
life with such innocence, promise and enthusiasm, it is simple to cry out,
I will, I will! When the time draws near and the chosen path is more
difficult than one realises, fear sets in. One cowers away from the great
things you can accomplish for fear of failure, difficulty and uncertainty.
It is so easy to remain, settle for mundain. To never step off the beaten
path, or in lamense terms, "I will do what is safe because I can not risk
for my dreams". When the largest adventure and greatest and final Journey
comes from shedding the confines of the body after ones last breath, like
the leaves themselves have done, I pray I have the courage and strength to
search out all I couldnt in life. Instead of stopping, let me soar... I
very much enjoy the works of Frost, more so the parables he uses in his
writtings.

this poems message is advice from Frost to be aware and knowledgeable of
experiences that may have had an affect in our lives and to appreciate the
free-will each and everyone of us are given.
american society is a failure
