the road not travelled - err, taken

I just saw Direckshun's thread and it reminded me of Frost's poem.

Quote:
Robert Frost (1874–1963). Mountain Interval. 1920.

1. 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; 5

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, 10

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. 15

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. 20
Any poems, short stories etc that you like that you haven't heard in a while?

Poem I memorized in second grade.


The Swing
Robert Louis Stevenson

HOW do you like to go up in a swing,
Up in the air so blue?
Oh, I do think it the pleasantest thing
Ever a child can do!

Up in the air and over the wall,
Till I can see so wide,
Rivers and trees and cattle and all
Over the countryside—

Till I look down on the garden green,
Down on the roof so brown—
Up in the air I go flying again,
Up in the air and down!

Favorite inspirational poem -


There is Sunshine in a Smile
Helen Steiner Rice

Life is a mixture of sunshine and rain,
Laughter and pleasure, teardrops and pain,
All days can’t be bright, but it’s certainly true,
There was never
a cloud the sun didn’t shine through—
So just keep on smiling whatever betide you,
Secure in the knowledge God is always beside you,
And you’ll find when you smile
your day will be brighter
And all of your burdens will seem so much lighter—
For each time you smile you will find it true
Somebody, Somewhere will Smile Back At You,
And nothing on earth can make life more worthwhile
Than the sunshine and warmth of a Beautiful Smile.

Ode To Toilet Paper.

By FAX

Oh toilet paper on a roll, you’re the very best.
You keep my butt clean and you help me pass the ass wipe test.

I guess if you weren’t near me, I’d have to use my thumb.
Or my fingers or my pencil or my bubble gum.

Oh, toilet paper, you give me a great sigh of relief
When you come back white I know that I will have clean briefs.

‘Cause when I want a bj, it’s nice to know for sure
That when my girl goes down on me that my asshole is pure.

Romance
Edgar Alan Poe


Romance, who loves to nod and sing,
With drowsy head and folded wing,
Among the green leaves as they shake
Far down within some shadowy lake,
To me a painted paroquet
Hath been- a most familiar bird-
Taught me my alphabet to say-
To lisp my very earliest word
While in the wild wood I did lie,
A child- with a most knowing eye.

Of late, eternal Condor years
So shake the very Heaven on high
With tumult as they thunder by,
I have no time for idle cares
Through gazing on the unquiet sky.
And when an hour with calmer wings
Its down upon my spirit flings-
That little time with lyre and rhyme
To while away- forbidden things!
My heart would feel to be a crime
Unless it trembled with the strings.

A poem I memorized during my boyhood:

All us folks with septic tanks
Give to you our heartfelt thanks
For putting nothing in the pot
That isn't guaranteed to rot

Klenex are bad, tampons too
Cigarette butts are taboo
No hair combings, use the basket
There's a darn good reason why we ask it.

Poem I memorized from childhood:

Momma and pops was waaaaa-AAAyyyy proud.....heh.

I was walking through the Jungle,
with my d*&k in my hand,
coolest n*gga in the whole damn land,
looked up in a tree, what did I see?
a big Gorilla 'bout to piss on me,
I picked up a rock, hit him in his c*&k,
knocked that Gorilla to the 48th block,
I said, look here 'Rilla let get something straight,
yo mamma's got a puzzie like a rattle-snake,
yo daddies got a d*%k....like two inches long,
look here 'Rilla...don't you talk 'bout mine.

Emily Dickinson


THE SOUL unto itself
Is an imperial friend,—
Or the most agonizing spy
An enemy could send.

Secure against its own,
No treason it can fear;
Itself its sovereign, of itself
The soul should stand in awe.

WHEN I hoped I feared,
Since I hoped I dared;
Everywhere alone
As a church remain;
Spectre cannot harm,
Serpent cannot charm;
He deposes doom,
Who hath suffered him.

William Shakespeare

Sonnet 4


Unthrifty loveliness, why dost thou spend
Upon thyself thy beauty's legacy?
Nature's bequest gives nothing but doth lend,
And being frank she lends to those are free.
Then, beauteous *****rd, why dost thou abuse
The bounteous largess given thee to give?
Profitless usurer, why dost thou use
So great a sum of sums, yet canst not live?
For having traffic with thyself alone,
Thou of thyself thy sweet self dost deceive.
Then how, when nature calls thee to be gone,
What acceptable audit canst thou leave?
Thy unused beauty must be tomb'd with thee,
Which, used, lives th' executor to be.

Sonnet 10

For shame! deny that thou bear'st love to any,
Who for thyself art so unprovident.
Grant, if thou wilt, thou art beloved of many,
But that thou none lovest is most evident;
For thou art so possess'd with murderous hate
That 'gainst thyself thou stick'st not to conspire.
Seeking that beauteous roof to ruinate
Which to repair should be thy chief desire.
O, change thy thought, that I may change my mind!
Shall hate be fairer lodged than gentle love?
Be, as thy presence is, gracious and kind,
Or to thyself at least kind-hearted prove:
Make thee another self, for love of me,
That beauty still may live in thine or thee.

Self-Image
03/11/1999

Have you ever tried to see yourself
As other people see you?
I think it would be hard,
If not impossible, to do.

They easily look past my faults
Because they do not know them.
I think, I feel, I know what’s real,
Although I do not show them.

I can’t pretend to be what I’m not
When I’m alone with no one else.
I realize no one sees me
The way I see myself.

Through daily life and meditation,
I know what I must change in me,
So there’s less of me to try to hide
And more for others to see.
