Poetry Definition – Writing in language chosen and arranged to create a particular emotional response through meaning, sound and rhythm. “Poetry can communicate before it is understood” (T.S. Eliot) “Poetry is when an emotion has found its thought and the thought has found words” (Frost) © Michal Preisler
Choice & Cost Every choice you make has a cost because choosing to do one thing means giving up the opportunity to do something else. Faced with the same options , different people make different choices because each person has his / her own way of making decisions based on different values and beliefs. When faced with the need to make a decision we try to think about the cost and guess the outcome. © Michal Preisler

The Road Not Taken By Robert FrostTwo roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; 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. 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, 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. To diverge - הִתְפַּצֵּל, הִסְתַּעֵף, הִתְחַלֵּק; סָטָה, פָּנָה © Michal Preisler
Vocabulary (to) diverge – להתפצל, להסתעף(an) undergrowth – סבך השיחים; שיחים הצומחים מתחת לעצים ביער או בחורשה (a) wood - יער Fair (adj) - נָאוֶה, יָפֶה (a) claim – תביעה, דרישה, טענה (a) wear - שְׁחִיקָה, הִתְבַּלּוּת tread - צָעַד, דָּרַךְ, פָּסַע (a) Sigh – אֲנָחָה Hence - מעתה, מעכשיו © Michal Preisler

Robert Frost Robert Frost was born in San Francisco, California but spent most of his life in New England, a rural area in the north east of the United States. The area is characterized by hills, woods, farms and small towns. Frost himself worked for many years as a farmer, in addition to teaching English and writing poems. His poems reflect the sights and sounds of where he lived, the fields, farms and woods and scenes of everyday life. All those elements make Frost’s poems accessible, leading readers to understand the deeper truths behind seemingly simple ideas © Michal Preisler
