For all of life's adventures comes The Road Not Taken,which The New York Times Book Review calls "a book that begs rereading'". This beautifully illustrated companion is inspired by Robert Frost's perennial poem. Heartwarming illustrations of a young boy journeying through a yellow wood accompany the original text of the poem. When a fork in the road arises for the boy, so too does the first of life's many choices. And as the poem progresses, so does the boy's life: college, career, marriage, family, loss, and, by journey's end, the sweet satisfaction of a life fully lived. The first children's book ever made of Frost's famous poem, this moving presentation makes an inspiring gift for graduation, marriage, career moves, and all of life's exciting roads. … (més)

I feel bad for saying this, but besides "The Road Not Taken". I really only liked two more of Robert Frost's poems. I ended up giving this 3.5 stars and rounded up to two on Goodreads.

Poems have never been my thing anyway so I am not that surprised that none of them really moved me besides that one and two others.

I think what got me is that most of the poems rhythm and meter seemed off because of the way that the sentences were written with commas and periods.

For example from In The Home Stretch:

Never was I beladied so before.
Would evidence of having been called lady
More than so many times make me a lady
In common law, I wonder.

There were a lot of instances that I thought I had the meter down in one sentence, but would find that I was totally off by the time I got to the second and third sentence.

Also the illustrated version of this was really not worth it. The pictures were just pictures of trees, roads, and were referring to the first poem, The Road Not Taken. I would probably have rated this higher if there had been additional pictures referencing the other poems.

The other two poems that I liked were, "Hyla Broo"k and "Bond and Free". "Hyla Brook" made me think of summer days playing in the creeks near my home. "Bond and Free" made me think of dusk and waiting for the stars to come out at night. ( )

Didn't know "Nothing Gold.." was written by Frost.

A good bathroom read. Definitely late 19th early century references but I'm old enough to sense their reality and truth. A reflective time that contrasts to todays high speed data influx.

Who ponders a field these days unless its for building or paving? ( )

Summary: two roads lay before a traveler. The one wanting wear is the one traveled and it made all the differences

Reflect: I remember having this read to my classmates and I several times and my teacher wanting us to think crucially as to why the writer chose the road less travelled.

Extension: this is a great way to start the children to think in the morning. My teacher had us do this the beginning of class and it was a great challenge that helped us focus in the class. ( )

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost is a narrative poem about a man that is faced with two roads and a decision of which one to take. The poem symbolizes the fact that in life there is always two choices and not to only choose the choice that everyone else does. It is about individuality and being okay with being yourself.

I really like this poem. I agree that in life we should not worry about what others are doing and keep our individuality. Not to always take the easier road when you are faced with a decision.

I think this is a good poem to have the children memorize and recite. ( )

A great collection of Frost’s poems; all the major works are here, the edition includes simple art in keeping with the poetry, and Untermeyer’s introduction and commentary which is interspersed in the text are insightful.

Quotes:
On forgiveness, from The Star-Splitter:
“If one by one we counted people out
For the least sin, it wouldn’t take us long
To get so we had no one left to live with.
For to be social is to be forgiving.”

On joy in small things, from A Prayer in Spring:
“Oh, give us pleasure in the flowers today;
And give us not to think so far away
As the uncertain harvest; keep us here
All simply in the springing of the year.”

On old age, from An Old Man’s Winter Night:
“A light he was to no one but himself
Where now he sat, concerned with he knew what,
A quiet light, and then not even that.”

On opinions, from The Secret Sits:
“We dance round in a ring and suppose,
But the Secret sits in the middle and knows.”

On togetherness, from The Master Speed:
“No speed of wind or water rushing by
But you have speed far greater. You can climb
Back up a stream of radiance to the sky,
And back through history up the stream of time.
And you were given this swiftness, not for haste,
Nor chiefly that you may go where you will,
But in the rush of everything to waste,
That you may have the power of standing still –
Off any still or moving thing you say.
Two such as you with such a master speed
Cannot be parted nor be swept away
From one another once you are agreed
That life is only life forevermore
Together wing to wing and oar to oar.”

On the transience of life, from West-running Brook:
“Some say existence like a Pirouot
And Pirouette, forever in one place,
Stands still and dances, but it runs away,
It seriously, sadly, runs away
To fill the abyss’ void with emptiness.”

On valuing life, from Birches:
“I’d like to get away from earth awhile
And then come back to it and begin over.
May no fate willfully misunderstand me
And half grant what I wish and snatch me away
Not to return. Earth’s the right place for love:
I don’t know where it’s likely to go better.
I’d like to go by climbing a birch tree,
And climb black branches up a snow-white trunk
Toward heaven, till the tree could bear no more,
But dipped its top and set me down again.
That would be good both going and coming back.
One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.”

On virtue, and independent thinking, from Choose Something Like a Star:
“It asks of us a certain height,
So when at times the mob is swayed
To carry praise or blame too far,
We may choose something like a star
To stay our minds on and be staid.”

Lastly, on solitude, this is Into My Own, a poem I love:
“One of my wishes is that those dark trees,
So old and firm they scarcely show the breeze,
Were not, as ‘twere, the merest mask of gloom,
But stretched away unto the edge of doom.

I should not be withheld but that some day
Into their vastness I should steal away,
Fearless of ever finding open land,
Or highway where the slow wheel pours the sand.

I do not see why I should e’er turn back,
Or those should not set forth upon my track
To overtake me, who should miss me here
And long to know if still I held them dear.

They would not find me changed from him they knew –
Only more sure of all I thought was true.” ( )
