Words that flow well and tell of times gone by. Thoughts to make one wonder about how things become in time. A barren land to the eyes of things gone by.

I remember from Frost's poem that he is careful not to say that the road he chose was the right one ot even that it made a positive difference to his life.

Here you have maybe misrepresented his poem to present your own vision of a road despoiled - your words cleverly evoke coldness and death and desolation.

It is a rather depressing 'state of the nation (or world)' piece - I definitely need a morning cup of coffee now!

    I do know that Frosts poem does not make positive reference to either road, but I was simply making a reference to the concept of a "road less taken," using it as a metaphor for originality and uniqueness. Thank you for the kind review and insightful words!

Hello wanderlost
Now I like you poem about troding a road then come about which path to take th one most used or never walked on before.
I like the idea of you Mentioning Robert Frost in this part of your perfect rhyming poem--

With wanderlust a few now stand
Scouring mountains, turning sand
In search of Frost's forgotten land
The path that time remands.

Keep writing.

Gert

Very nice poetic flow, great imagery that lead to grasping detail and a sense of wonder.

I have nothing negative to say.

Your words rhyme in a nice rhythm and I totally enjoyed reading it!

Wonderlost, I recognize this road that compares to many roads in Hawaii that have been destroyed by hot burning lava and then cools. My take on your poetic work, is much like my life. A path walked by me, has been taken and now in my life, I must leave or die. Very nice piece. Carole

Hi Wanderlost,

A good graphicly descriptive poem, it carries your imagery well. The march of time, climate, progress and changes to human enterprise all change around us, leaving some stranded and some abandoned as you suggest. The road less taken often leads to something precious, but can also lead nowhere.

Patrick

I loved it all, but especially this part:

So off they go with intrepid pride
Past multitudes of empty eyes
A barren land of resigning sighs
Those of the path must leave or die.

It really deserves ALL TIME BEST
Congratulations

I really enjoyed this rhymed quatrain, for a first piece it is excellent. I personally love finding old work that I can dust off and look over again, it's always a great way of walking down memory lane. I thought your flow was smooth, the alliterations and imagery were strong and the piece overall is well executed. Great work, thanks for sharing.

I loved the imagery here. You suggest all kinds of things that you never outright say and it made me really think about your poem after I finished reading.

The rhymes were good and the flow was very smooth.

Great work.
