Whimiscal Calendar is out again....

Saturday, August 21, is the birthday of
drop by to say Happy Birthday to the lovely Ms. G.
and According to my Whimsical Calendar today is also
Poem Day.
The entire poem is beautiful; however, the last three lines
are always floating around in my head. Life is about the choices we make.

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 I 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.
Thank you Madi for allowing me 100% use of YOUR blog today.
Mom

  12. Blog Mom says sometimes she wonders what would have happened if she'd taken the road MORE travelled. She wonders if she'd have a better idea where she's been or is or something. I don't what she's talking about. But have a great day!

    lotsa licks, LOla

  14. I love that poem too. That's probably the only poem I know by heart (but that's only because it was turned into a choral song and we sang it in college!)

  18. Madi, how sweet of you to let your Mom have the blog all to herself today.

    That is one of my favorite Robert Frost poems. In a roundabout way it influenced the title of my main blog. We love poetry and have one for you.

    I'm Only a Cat

    I'm only a cat,
    and I stay in my place...
    Up there on your chair,
    on your bed or your face!

    I'm only a cat,
    and I don't finick much...
    I'm happy with cream
    and anchovies and such!

    I'm only a cat,
    and we'll get along fine...
    As long as you know
    I'm not yours... you're all mine!
