Aspen groves always draw me with the sound of leaves quaking in the breeze. Their golden canopy beautifully contrasting against their majestic trunks. Each capturing hues of reflected light all around. Deeper I walk into the forest. While painting, lost in the woods, its title drifted clearly into focus, The Road Less Traveled. Poetic words of Robert Frost danced through my mind. I too shall choose the road less traveled…
The Road Not Taken
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
