Two roads diverged1 in a yellow wood,
0And sorry I could not travel both
0And be one traveler, long I stood
0And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent2 in the undergrowth;
Then took the other, as just as fair,
0And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy3 and wanted wear;

0And 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,
0And that has made all the difference
