Much in the spirit of John Donne's "The Flea" I have taken two videos and co-mingled them into one video. The voice is from MichellesMovieMayhem• found at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UdPvaVRj2J4 and the images come from poetryhelp101 found at http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MeJQSuv-_iA. This video was created to help my students.

This is a personal favorite—a simple yet iconic reflection on a major, life-changing shift in one's life. This masterpiece of Robert Frost is always a source of inspiration. ________________________________________ The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (1874-1963) during his "Mountain Interval," 1920 Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far 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 on 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 traveled by, And that has made all the difference. ________________________________________ Video: Copyright © 2012, John C.
