The Road Not Taken Drawing

The Road Not Taken Drawing

Posted in: Artwork

This illustration was inspired by a poem written by American poet Mr Robert Frost. The poem is called “The Road Not Taken” and it looks at life, more specifically the decisions we each have to make. Over the past few months I have been drawing a lot, this illustration is something a little different, I hope you like it.

The Road Not Taken

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.
