I love poetry. Poems are a great source of inspiration for me. During 2018, I’m working to memorize my favorites. I work on the memorizing every morning while doing “ball planks,” which are part of my morning rituals. I will turn 50 in June, and memorizing is apparently helps keep sharp an aging brain. Mostly, though, I’m memorizing these so I have them with me at all times without having to carry printouts of the poems.
This is the second of a series of videos of me reciting favorite poems I have worked to memorize. It’s one of my favorites, The Road Not Taken, by Robert Frost. I love this poem for so many reasons. And let me tell you, in case you don’t know and in case you care, this poem is one of the most understood poems. Think about the title, and listen/consider the lines. Do you think it’s about regret? About choice? About choosing nonconformity? Share your thoughts if you’d like by leaving a comment.
Thanks for watching. And please feel free to share with me some of your favorite poems! (See all of my recorded memorized poems.)
