The road not taken by Robert Frost

Here’s the first stanza of this poem.

TWO 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;

I have two problems related to the above lines. Please help me in answering following two questions.

  1. Here, what is the meaning of “two roads”? I mean what it can be?
  2. Also, what is the meaning of “a yellow wood”?

Hello Rajesh,

as your picture shows, two roads = two pathways going different ways.
Either the trees that grow in that particular wood have a yellow hint about them (possibly from sunlight, possibly from blossom, or possibly because the leaves are a yellowy green) or there is an abundance of yellow flowers.
