A Time to Talk Analysis



Author: Poetry of Robert Lee Frost Type: Poetry Views: 636



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 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.

.: :.

I really love this poem because I can relate to it. In A Time to Talk, the speaker is talking about how if a friend comes to talk to him while he is busy doing something, he will put down what he is doing and talk to them. I try to do this as well. Maintaining friendships holds a lot of importance to me, so whenever a friend needs my help or wants to talk to me, I will put down whatever I am doing and help them or talk to them or at least I try to. I think it is imperative for people to realize that when they ignore their friends in order to finish the work they are doing, the work may seem important to them now, but in a few days or months, they will have forgotten about it. However, if they keep ignoring their friends, they may lose those friendships forever. And by that time, it will be too late. That is why I think it is so crucial for people to understand the moral of this poem and to also apply it to their lives, because it would be really unfortunate to lose a friendship over such trivial matters.

.: "A TIme to Talk" poem ana :.

This poem 'A time to talk" by Robert frost is specifically a snapshot of the lightening-quick moment of decision made by a field worker. It is more broadly about choosing to stop the seeming perpetual actions of work when approached by a friend interested in conversation. The subject of the poem is in the field when he is approached by a friend on horseback, "slows his horse to a meaniung walk"; the worker is confronted with a choice to dismiss his friendly overture or not. He, the worker, decides it is of more lasting value to him to stop working to talk with this friend than it is to keep working doggedly & finish hoeing for the day. "I dont stand still to look around at all the hills I haven't hoed" The writer decides not to belabor his waiting work. It is an active choice to "walk up to the stone wall" so the friends can talk. The worker is welcoming "a friendly visit".
