the road not taken…

robert lee frost é considerado o poeta da nova inglaterra (a nova inglaterra é a região dos estados unidos compreendida pelos estados do NE – massachusetts, new hampshire, maine e vermont). entretanto, frost nasceu na cidade de san francisco, california, de onde saiu com 11 anos de idade para enterrar o pai, segundo seu último desejo, na sua cidade natal, no estado de massachusetts. the road not taken nos leva às florestas da nova inglaterra e ao âmago do espírito de frost.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.

(Robert Frost)

  1. Pois é, meu caro. Gostei das tuas mentiras. Não porque fossem mentiras, mas por se parecerem verdades. Deves saber: aparência é tudo.

    E teu blog, cada dia mais bonito. Parabéns!
