Robert Frost's The Road Not Taken maybe an obvious choice for favourite, most inspiring poem ever ... but that's the point right there ... it's the poetry version of 70's #BohemianRhapsody by #Queen, 80's #Thriller by #MichaelJackson and 90's #Vogue by #Madonna It's an undisputed hit of the poetry charts
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel bot
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.
