  • This is really nice Margaret, and I really like the lady in the lake one too. I don't know how I missed it.

  • Thanks - in case you're interested this is the whole poem :- The Road Not Taken Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveller, 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 travelled by, And that has made all the difference. By Robert Frost (1915) I'm going to illustrate his other very famous poem next "Stopping by Woods on a Snowy Evening."

  • Hmm - You can't post poetry in proper lines of verse can you? It all runs together. Hope you can make sense of the above,

  • Such a simple yet evocative poem, I like it, and a painting that does it proud, as I'm sure Robert Frost would agree. Well done.
