My first encounter with Robert Frost was in the Simon & Garfunkel song “Dangling Conversation”
As you read your Emily Dickinson and I my Robert Frost
And we note our places with bookmarkers
And measure what we lost
At that time, when I was still in school, I didn’t really know who or what was Robert Frost. The next encounter was when I came across various quiz questions about the poem that was on Pt Nehru’s table around the time he died.
The woods are lovely, dark and deep.
But I have promises to keep,
And miles to go before I sleep,
And miles to go before I sleep.
So over time I did do some reading of Robert Frost. Now, with Sanjeev doing his daily poetry tweets on Robert Frost, it triggered me to write this post.
I found this video of the bio of Robert Frost – a slideshow with Kansas doing Dust in the Wind in the background
Listen to Robert Frost reciting The Road Not Taken.
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.
Awesomeness it is.
