I just don’t think most people put myself and Robert Frost in the same category.”   —   Bob Newhart

(Oh, I don’t know, Bob.  I always kind of picture both of you in sweaters!  Now, you and Robert Redford . . . definitely not in the same category!  This appears to be our first Bob Newhart quote at the Cryptoquote!  So, we welcome Bob – a national comic treasure – to the Cryptoquote Club today.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Answer:  POETRY IN MOTION

(“She turned her tender eyes to me.  As deep as any ocean.  As sweet as any harmony…”  NAME THAT TUNE!!!  Sorry, folks.  Those lyrics have only a fairly remote connection to today’s Jumble.  Sigh.  Is it a poem of contentment, or one of regret?  We all have had to make – and live with our – choices in life.  And, we all have dozens – or maybe hundreds – of what ifs that we frequently ponder.  Dwelling on them doesn’t do a whole lot of good.  You just live with the choices you’ve made.  And perhaps, someday down the road, you might get the chance to make a choice similar to the one that you didn’t make back then.  That’s a little sumpin’ we like to call hope.

None of today’s clue words took the path less traveled by.  They are all members of the world famous ralis95 clue word database.  Three of the four jumbles are also not new, with “onieid” being the only one we’ve most likely not seen before.  The answer letter layout was an impressive fourteen letter jumble.  I kind of saw the answer right away though.  I think it was all in the clue/question.  Hmm!  What would a poet’s composition be called???  And, strolling is an example of . . . ?  LOL!

Wonderful woodsy cartoon of Robert Frost, and perhaps his good friend Edward Thomas.  If you look real close, at the top of the cartoon, there’s a little deer about to cross the left path.  I’m wondering if David came up with this pun on his own, or if it was suggested to him by a Jumble fan.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

The middle of the road is where the white line is – and that’s the worst place to drive.”   —   Robert Frost

(That’s why I’m a Progressive Democrat!  I do not dig the namby pamby centrists!  They might as well be Republicans.  Not that there’s anything wrong with them.  But, there are things – and times – in life where you have to choose one over the other.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Happiness makes up in height for what it lacks in length.”   —   Robert Frost

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I  —  I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.”   —   Robert Frost

(It took me a little while to realize this was from THE famous quote, and not a humorous variant of such.  The road less traveled is great for those who think differently.  But, if you’re locked into tradition, and you’ve been completely indoctrinated in a specific way, then the road less traveled is probably just going to frustrate you, to no end.  Stay to the more traveled road, if that suits your comfort.  Just accept that there are those of us who won’t be following you.  Nothing is guaranteed, either way.  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR

Don’t ever take a fence down until you know why it was put up.”   —   Robert Frost

(Sounds more like Mark Twain, to me!  Maybe, Josh Billings.  But, Mr. Frost?  Poets aren’t allowed to speak in prose.  Are they???  Be well and do good, friends.)   —   YUR  😉

In three words I can sum up everything I’ve learned about life:  it goes on.”   —   Robert Frost

(If you hold – what I think is the crazy assumption – that the Earth is the only planet where “life” exists, as many religious fundamentalists seem to believe, then you’d think that you would take stewardship of this planet much more seriously.  But, no.  It seems that too many people who think this way are entrenched in the belief that God gave man dominion over all the earth.  When you keep taking, and you keep befouling, you are eventually going to reach that point where life cannot go on.  Be responsible, friends.)   —   YUR

Love is the irresistible desire to be irresistibly desired.”   —   Robert Frost

(Cute word play, but not exactly an accurate definition.  Unless he’s referring to Golden Retrievers.  If so, then he nailed it!)   —   YUR
