The Road Not Taken - Robert Frost
The important thing to learn from The Road Not Taken is that one must follow his or her own way in life and not follow the path that other people have taken before. Taking the road less traveled by is taking a risk, but ultimately could turn out to be a decision that one would not regret.
A Valediction Forbidding Mourning - John Donne
The girl, essentially, is the fixed point in Donne's life. As Donne travels and moves, the girl will always be like the center of the compass, so that eventually he will be back at the right spot. Without the stability of the girl, Donne would not be able to complete the circle, would not be able to "makes my circle just".
