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.
Leave a link to your Musing Mondays post in the comments or just let me know what your favorite poem or poem collection is. 🙂

I hope you’re feeling better soon! Sending lots of positive vibes your way ✨♥
It seems I’m the one staying away from blogging and reading this week. I just don’t feel like doing any of it. It’s only Tuesday, but I have a thousand things to do, which means books and blogs are sent to the back burner. Hopefully, next week will be less busy and I’ll have more sleep, so my brain can come up with posts and comments.
