Would you believe that just yesterday I was punning on "two roads diverged in a yellow wood" while learning a vision therapy exercise having to do with focus convergence? The eye doctor resisted but ultimately gave in.


Hi David,

I read somewhere an interpretation that Frost may have had as much regret as pride in that last stanza, which is interesting to think about...
