Diverged = to split and move out in different directions from a single point

Fair = Not very good or very bad; of average or acceptable quality.

"And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth"

Undergrowth = Plants, bushes, and small tress growing under larger trees in a forest.

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both..." -

"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"

Exit Ticket Send Mrs. Saul a chat answering this question: What is your interpretation of the final three lines of this poem? What do you think Frost meant? "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—/ I took the one less traveled by, / And that has made all the difference."

Oh, I kept the first for another day!Yet knowing how way leads on to way, I doubted if I should ever come back.

"Two roads diverged in a wood, and I— I took the one less traveled by, And that has made all the difference.

And both that morning equally lay In leaves no step had trodden black.
