Inscription: "Two roads diverged in a wood, and I, I took the one less traveled by and that has made all the difference" with Robert Frost's signature from the collection Mountain Interval published in 1916. Frost (1874-1963) is considered one of the major poets in the United States. He won four Pulitzer prizes for poetry. He taught writing during much of his life but he also worked his own farm for nine years. During this period he wrote many of his major poems with themes that included rural settings and farm life as this one does.
