Musings on Frost

I spent the morning hiking today, exploring the beautiful Cheyenne Canyon area. As I admired the natural wonders around me, I was reminded of the poem by Robert Frost, "The Road Not Taken." I composed a new version of it, and here it is.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I turned around and hiked back to my car.
I was hungry.

Now, here is the boy I know and love. If you're ever lost in the woods, we'll find you by setting out a banquet so you can "smell" your way out!

An interesting take on that poem. If I remember correctly, Frost never addressed the option of turning around. I wonder why.
