The Road Not Taken - Only in Vermont!

The poem, 'The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost is one of few poems that I actually like, I suppose because it is relatable. So Yahoo News got my attention when I read this headline, "Robert Frost house vandals punished with 'The Road Not Taken.'"

The first line revealed Middlebury, Vermont. By the time I was done reading, once again I was left saying, "Only in Vermont!" Vermont is a combination of "Little House on a Prairie" meets "Andy Griffith."

The following article reveals the true essence of life in Vermont, "From bad to verse: Vandals get classroom penance."

''The Road Not Taken' by Robert Frost

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.
