The empire was expanding in its usual manner by sending an invasion fleet of warships into a likely star system. And why, most of all, don't they feel like real communities? This line initiates a change: as the speaker shifts from depiction to contemplation, the language becomes more stilted, dramatic, and old-fashioned.

    Some have said that it is one of his most misunderstood poems, claiming that it is not simply a poem that champions the idea of "following your own path", but that the poem, they suggest, expresses some irony regarding that idea.

After peering down one road as far as he can see, the speaker chooses to take the other one, which he describes 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. Why not build on this? They might heed doctrinal criticisms, if they come from plain-spoken legal scholars who identify more as lawyers than academics.
