The Traveller

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.


  1. I love this bracelet. even more after i saw the poem you paired it with - my favorite poem of all time. sigh. (mmm, trade?)

  2. HI HP

    I'm planning on making more of this style, I've already contacted Jade about making some charms for me using vintage maps. I'd like to see how this one sells, but will plan on making one for you (for trade) soon, how does that sound?

  3. What a lovely bracelet and perfect poem to go with it!

  4. Beautiful and one of my favourite poems.

  5. Both poem and bracelet equally beautiful Lorelei!

  6. Heavy sigh, Lorelei! I love that Robert Frost poem. It's seems befitting of my life right now. I also love the bracelet. Jade's charms are so special!

  7. So, one of my first stops on my daily surf was here only to find my favorite poem from my favorite poet coupled with a drop-dead gorgeous piece of jewelry. You rock!

I'm sorry to have to turn on the word verification here, but I got fed up with spammers comments!

Better than a thousand hollow words, is one word that brings peace.
