The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (poetry)

This poem is about the author standing in the woods at a fork in the road. He is deciding what path to take. He mentions that each path is equally worn and "grassy". Also he mentions the fact that no step leads back once you start down a path. Then the author chooses a path and hopes to have the oppertunity to come back and try the other path one day. The author knows he probably won't be able to because he says "I doubted if I should ever come back". The last two lines were my favorite part of this poem. The author says he took the path less traveled by and that made all the difference.
