Robert Frost at the Beach

The last three lines of Robert Frost’s “The Road Not Taken” appear as a tattoo on a woman’s left shoulder as she stands at the beach facing away from the Pacific Ocean. This iconic poem, published in 1916 during WWI, has been analyzed a thousand times over. I say it is simply about making a choice.

  1. A good poem. But I do not think I would care to have a tattoo of any sort. Certainly is a large tattoo.

    1. I’d like to know the story behind this tattoo, but getting a tattoo is a private matter.

  2. The poet E. E. Cummings once stated that The Road Not Taken was about the only poem by Frost that he liked. I wholeheartedly agree! 🙂

    1. Frost nailed it on this one just as TS Elliot did with “in the room the women come and go talking of Michelangelo”.
