Totally Conkers! Yes, that is the name for the daily listing club on folksy for the month of October. Fabulous name, don’t you think? Well, today I shall be illustrating my blog post with some beautiful blue items from the listing club. Blue is my favourite colour, so it was a natural choice, but what fabulous items! Please click on the photos and explore the shops – I am sure you find something you would like to purchase!
Now, what has this to do with “The Road Not Taken”? Absolutely nothing! I just decided it was time for some poetry and I am sure this poem by Robert Frost is a favourite for many people.
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood.
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, long I stood
And looked down one for as long 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 onto 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 travelled by,
And that has made all the difference.
I hope you have enjoyed re-reading the poem, or perhaps reading it for the first time. I think Robert Frost gives us a lot to think about. I hope you have enjoyed looking at the beautiful items for sale from folksy sellers. Here is one from me:
What road have you taken?
