The Road Not Taken


The Road Not Taken
------Robert Frost
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.

译注:
黄色的树林里分出两条路
可惜我不能同时去涉足
我在那路口久久伫立
我向着一条路极目望去
直到它消失在丛林深处
但我却选择了另外一条路
它荒草萋萋,十分幽寂
显得更诱人,更美丽
虽然在这条小路上
很少留下旅人的足迹
那天清晨落叶满地
两条路都未经脚印污染
呵,留下一条路等改日再见
但我知道路径延绵无尽头
恐怕我难以再回返
也许多少年后在某个地方,
我将轻声叹息将往事回顾:
一片树林里分出两条路——
而我选择了人迹更少的一条,
从此决定了我一生的道路。

  弗罗斯特的The road not taken是其著名诗集《Mountain Interval》的第一首,它是最著名,也是最饱受争议的。他写诗最大的特色就是善于运用眼前看似平淡无奇的事物,去表达一个深刻的哲理。正因为他长于用具体的事物说抽象的概念,所以他的诗就易为读者接受和了解!
  这首诗的形式,是传统的抑扬格四音步,每节的韵式为abaab,读起来朗朗上口。这首诗,描绘的是一个面临选择的人和他进行选择时的心态,至于选择的具体内容并没有写出,诗人的着眼点是选择的本身。每一个读者都能够在这首诗中发现自己的生活体验,体味其中的哲理。
