TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,And sorry I could not travel bothAnd be one traveler, long I stoodAnd looked down one as far as I could Nothing Gold Can StayTo where it bent in the undergrowth;Then took the other, as just as fair, Natures first green is gold,And having perhaps the better claim, Her hardest hue to hold.Because it was grassy and wanted wear; Her early leafs a flower;Though as for that the passing thereHad worn them really about the same, But only so an hour. Then leaf subsides to leaf.And both that morning equally lay So Eden sank to grief,In leaves no step had trodden black.Oh, I kept the first for another day! So dawn goes down to day.Yet knowing how way leads on to way, Nothing gold can stay.I doubted if I should ever come back.I shall be telling this with a sighSomewhere ages and ages hence:Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—I took the one less traveled by,And that has made all the difference.
