    Rpbert Frost is a wonderfully emotional and inspiring poet. I think he wrote this poem to say that even if you get a better offer you should keep your promise.

    Well, words are words and it may mean a lot of things sometimes. It's meaning would largely depend on who's reading it and on the kind of values one possesses. But I guess Poets are known to be gentle and cool. Are we suppose to destroy this planet just because of a comment? PEACE. Give that idiot (Whitt Bell) a chance. Poetry begins in delight and ends in wisdom. - Robert Frost. Ciao!

    Well people who don't understand poetry are surely not second citizens. However, their wish to write off what they don't understand is foolish. They'd be better off asking for cues to get the hang of poetry - if they are willing to learn. And if they'd prefer not to, they should abstain from remarks that refer to their own shallowness.

    We don't know Whitt Bell and we may too not care, but do care what Robert Frost weaves..

    I apologize to all for the fact that i'm using this comment box as a means of delivering a personal message, but i feel it must be done. Okay first off... Why Whitt Bell why? Why do you pollute the msg boards of a website dedicated to poetry and poets alike with phrases of 'i hate this guy, i think all poetry is stupid.'
    Its obvious you don't understand the greater meaning behind written works of literature and, in turn, it shows that your an illiterate twit who is a prime example of ignorance everywhere. Your kind infest the world and, like a parasite, feast on the living Word of others while producing nothing of your own. You are a hypocrite and a louse; you should spout your words of stupidity elsewhere. Leave us in peace.

    I don't know who Robert Frost is and don't care. I think his poetry and everybody elses is stupid. I hate poetry.

    Frost is one of my favorite poets. Among the likes of William Wordsworth and Margaret Atwood I prefer Frost as he strikes a good balance between the irrationality of the romantic era and the cold, harsh but realistic nature of life itself.

    Robert Frost has written some very good poems.

A Time to Talk

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
