poetPoet Cat Jack here today with a riff on the famous poem by Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken.


The Road Not Sauntered

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not saunter both
And being a cat 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 paws,
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both yada yada
In leaves no step yada yada yada.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing yada yada
I meowed.

I shall be telling this with a purr
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I,
I took the one less sauntered by,
And that has made all the difference.

  1. Hi Y’all!

    Well, I’m not a cat. I check all the roads.

    If I don’t take a road, I’ll never know if I missed something, will I?

    I go at high speed, while you felines just saunter along…unless…unless…you meet up with one of us who hurry you up.

    Y’all come on by!

    • Thank you for stopping by Hawk. I am perfectly happy sauntering… I can fully understand your point of view however. Even though they say curiosity killed the cat, I think dogs have just as much! And I am also happy not to be the ‘hurried up one’ you mention. meow! ~Poet-cat Jack

    • We here at 2catsandacattledog have missed joining this blog hop. Glad we could make it this week. Thank you… ~Poet-Cat Jack
