BW50: A Time to Talk by Robert Frost


Happy Sunday! I love the picture above as well as this simple poem by Robert Frost and the imagery they evoke.  Have a wonderful reading week, my lovelies. 

A Time to Talk


Robert Frost

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. 

For 2022, I'm introducing a new year long reading challenge called A to Z and back again.  One word beginning with that letter every week as we work all the way through the alphabet forward, then back to A. The word of the week will be announced with each Sunday's post.  There will be numerous ways to play which include reading a book with the word in the title; read alphabetically by author or title; includes the emotion or action or characteristic or job of the character or the story; find a synonym or antonym; form an aptigram or antigram; Create a story or poem and let your thoughts fly. 

To give you an example, since we are on week 50, we'd be on the letter c. 

The word of the week: Chivalry.   Make of it what you will.

  1. I love that picture! And the poem. The new challenge sounds like a fun one.

  2. Informative stuff. Actually, I'm also a student and find out the solved or answers to my syllabus questions & landed here. The best novels expand our understanding of life. We also have intelligence, and novels stimulate our intelligence in a slightly different way than non-fiction books. Its a fact you have also shared an enjoyable and informative piece of content here. Anyways, thanks for sharing the nice piece of stuff with us.


Thank you for your kind comments.
