The Road Not Taken
Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveller, 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
This necklace is a reminder to take that road less traveled...
Hand-forged and stamped sterling silver, with a small charm showing the sun over a divided road.
Delicately suspended from a sterling rolo chain, the sterling tag and the charm are independent from one another and move separately.
Please indicate desired length of your necklace in the comments upon checkout. If none is indicated, a 16" chain with 2" extender will be sent. All metal is sterling silver.
