THIS WEEK’S RANDOM QUESTION: Your favorite poem, or collection of poetry?


I’m really upset by (book/author/bookish-news)…

Last week I was in a major apathetic mood, I didn’t pick up a book to read even though I went to the library and stocked up on some amazing books. I also didn’t really blog which I’m sure y’all noticed, as I wasn’t very active in responding to comments or anything. I just want to apologize to everyone for my lack of posts, comments, likes, etc. I’ll be back to my old self this week, I promise!

Your favorite poem, or collection of poetry?

I’m not the biggest poetry fan but I will say that Robert Frost’s The Road Not Taken has always been a poem I enjoy. I love the message and the way it’s written, basically just everything about it. It’s simply beautiful. Wouldn’t you agree?

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.
