POEM - challies blog

Today I encountered, “A Time To Talk,” a little poem by Robert Frost.

I’d suggest that, unlike some poetry, it needs little explanation.

A little reflection wouldn’t hurt, though.


When a friend calls to me from the road
And slows his horse to a meaning walk,
I don’t stand still and look around
On all the hills I haven’t hoed,
And shout from where I am, What is it?
No, not as there is a time to talk.
I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,
Blade-end up and five feet tall,
And plod: I go up to the stone wall
For a friendly visit.
- Robert Frost


... tim is correct . the poem needs no explanation .

as i considered his invite to reflect i found my heart ...

* often standing still & looking on all the hills i haven't hoed
* shouting from where i am
* needing to more often thrust my hoe in the mellow ground
* not plodding up to the stone wall ... for a friendly visit

grateful for this gentle reminder . thanks tim (:
