Robert Frost ain’t nothin to…

On this day in 1915, Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” was first published in the The Atlantic Monthly.

Here’s my version first: “Two Roads” featuring Brandon Brooks on cello. Recorded live at the Lizard Lounge, Cambridge, MA.

 

And now, Mr. Frost’s:

“The Road Not Taken”

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere 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.
