The tenth of November 2018

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 where my eyes laid upon a goat,
There the caprine sat, as if to gloat,
He blocked my path and I said, I quote
Dear goat, why should you rest here in the middle of the path
You are blocking this byway with your sunbath
And the goat looked at me with gleam in his eye
Needless to say, he would not let me pass by
AsI waited,  the time did fly
And sure enough, I soon did realise
That everyday I must devote
Some words in honour of the goat
And all of their kind, so silly yet wise
And that has made all the difference.
Inspired by and partially borrowed from The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost 

Whatever your journey, I hope someday you meet a goat along the way.
