A Moment to Meditate: Poetry About Decision-Making

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost   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 … Continue reading A Moment to Meditate: Poetry About Decision-Making
