Robert Frost
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
For a friendly visit.

(from "Mountain Interval" - 1916)
