p paraphrase stanza 1
P—Paraphrase (Stanza #1)

ORIGINAL TEXT (

ONLY WRITE THIS PART

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;

There’s two roads that split (‘diverged’) midforest in fall. The speaker is only one person so he can’t go down both. He takes his time (“long I stood”) and looks down one road but the road is curved and his view is blocked by bushes (“undergrowth).

p paraphrase stanza 2
P—Paraphrase (Stanza #2)

ORIGINAL TEXT

ONLY WRITE THIS PART

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,

He takes the other road, thinking it’s better land (“claim”) since it’s grassy and didn’t have (“wanted”) signs of use (“wear”). But he notices that there is a bald (“worn”) patch where the two roads meet because other people have also gone back and forth (“passing”) looking at both roads.

p paraphrase stanza 3
P—Paraphrase (Stanza #3)

ORIGINAL TEXT

ONLY WRITE THIS PART

And both that morning equally lay

In leaves no step had trodden black.

Oh, I marked the first for another day!

Yet knowing how way leads on to way

I doubted if I should ever come back.

Both roads were covered with freshly fallen leaves that no one had stepped on (“trodden”) yet. He made a mental note (“marked”) to use the other road one day, but he knows he probably won’t go back since a road becomes complicated and opens up even more roads (“way leads on to way”).

p paraphrase stanza 4
P—Paraphrase (Stanza #4)

ORIGINAL TEXT

ONLY WRITE THIS PART

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. 

He predicts he will be saying the following when he is older: There were two roads split in the forest and I took the one people hardly used. That made a big difference in my life.

      • He sort of thinks they BOTH look the same and can’t decide
  • Tone #2: Proud
