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!

POETRY RESPONSE: “Road Not Taken” (Abby G.)

Posted on September 26, 2008. Filed under: Poetry Responses | Tags: , |

I just read a poem called “Road Not Taken” by Robert Lee Frost.  He is a famous poet.

I think that this poem is about life.  In life there’s always two roads which represent choices you make.  If you pick the right choice, even if it is difficult because it means being different, it will pay off in the long run.

While I was reading this poem, I was surprised because the poem was probably based on difficult choices Robert Frost had to make.  This poem is appropriate for students in middle school because they have to make a lot of decisions about who to hang out with, deciding to go to school even when they don’t feel well, and even what clothes to wear.

I would like Miss Morris to read more poetry by this poet because Robert Frost is a good poet and he is famous.  He also has cool poems that would be nice to hear in class.  I would recommend this poem to other students because they could get something out of it.
