"A Time to Talk" by Robert Frost – Poetry Insight
“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 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.”
Nothing should ever be more important than your friends and family that you brush them to the side, as though a chore could take priority over having a joyful moment in conversation with them. In these days of constant work work work, remember to pause for those closest to you and share in many moments of joy and laughter. You’ll find it’s one of the best remedies to feeling drained and exhausted!
