About Robert Frost

“The Road Not Taken”

“Nothing Gold Can Stay”

“Fire and Ice”

Robert Frost was an American poet who won four Pulitzer Prizes for his work. He was well known for his depictions of New England in his work, which were accessible to many people because they used common language and described familiar situations. Frost became the first poet to have the honor of speaking at a presidential inauguration when he spoke at President John F. Kennedy’s inauguration in 1961.

“The Road Not Taken”

By Robert Frost


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.

“Fire and Ice”

By Robert Frost


Some say the world will end in fire,

Some say in ice.

From what I’ve tasted of desire

I hold with those who favor fire.

But if it had to perish twice,

I think I know enough of hate

To say that for destruction ice

Is also great

And would suffice

“Nothing Gold Can Stay”

By Robert Frost


Nature’s first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf’s a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.
