未选择的路 罗伯特. (美)罗伯特.弗罗斯特 黄色的树林里分出两条路, 黄色的树林里分出两条路, 可惜我不能同时去涉足, 可惜我不能同时去涉足, 我在那路口久久伫立, 我在那路口久久伫立, 我向着一条路极目望去, 我向着一条路极目望去, 直到它消失在丛林深处。 直到它消失在丛林深处。
3
但我却选了另外一条路, 但我却选了另外一条路, 它荒草萋萋,十分幽寂, 它荒草萋萋,十分幽寂, 显得更诱人、更美丽, 显得更诱人、更美丽, 虽然在这两条小路上, 虽然在这两条小路上, 都很少留下旅人的足迹, 都很少留下旅人的足迹,
4
虽然那天清晨落叶满地, 虽然那天清晨落叶满地, 两条路都未经脚印污染。 两条路都未经脚印污染。 留下一条路等改日再见! 呵,留下一条路等改日再见! 但我知道路径延绵无尽头, 但我知道路径延绵无尽头, 恐怕我难以再回返。 恐怕我难以再回返。
5
也许多少年后在某个地方, 也许多少年后在某个地方, 我将轻声叹息把往事回顾, 我将轻声叹息把往事回顾, 一片树林里分出两条路, 一片树林里分出两条路, 而我选了人迹更少的一条, 而我选了人迹更少的一条, 从此决定了我一生的道路。 从此决定了我一生的道路。
