  31. 31. Two roads diverged in a yellowwood,
And sorry I could not travelboth
And be one traveler, long Istood
And looked down one as far as Icould
To where it bent in theundergrowth;
  32. 32. Then took the other, as just as fair,
Andhaving perhaps the better claim
Becauseit was grassy and wanted wear,
Thoughas for that the passing there
Had wornthem really about the same
  33. 33. And both that morning equally lay
Inleaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, Ikept the first for another day! 
Yetknowing how way leads on to way
Idoubted if I should ever come back.
  34. 34. I shall be telling this with asigh
Somewhere ages and ageshence:
Two roads diverged in a wood,and I,
I took the one less traveledby,
And that has made all thedifference.
