CCEE1817, National Poetry Day

For her last challenge this month, Lois says April is National Poetry Month and today is Poem in your Pocket Day.  Create a card using a poem as your inspiration.

I chose Robert Frost's "The Road Not Taken":

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.

What a beautiful scene on this card, mf!! Such a perfect representation of the poem you chose. Robert Frost had such a way with words, and you have such a way with picturing them (complete with little faces peeking out!!). Just lovely!!
