POETRY RESPONSE: “Road Not Taken” (Hayley M.)

Posted on October 2, 2008. Filed under: Poetry Responses | Tags: , , |

I just read the poem “Road Not Taken” by Robert Lee Frost.  Some other poems that he is known for are “A Time to Talk,” “Gathering Leaves,” and “Good Hours.”  

After reading this poem, I thought that it was a really beautiful poem.  I also thought that it was about two roads that are totally different.  The roads are not real roads; they are metaphoric.  They are symbolizing two different choices.  One choice is achieving goals that the other one might be for failing.

When I was reading the poem I felt touched!  The reason why I felt touched is because it meant so much to me.  Plus, it tells so much and is it only a poem, NOT a story!  Amazing!! 

I have already read some of Frost’s other poems, and they were not as touching as this one!
