Two roads diverged in a yellow wood (a shrub or small tree of New Zealand),
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler (one who travels), long I stood (for long time)

To where it bent (sharply curved) in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair (gathering of people ),

In leaves no step had trodden black(stepped on to the point).

And that has made all the difference (things are dissimilar)
