A Time To Talk by Robert Frost

I was recently introduced to A Time To Talk by Robert Frost.  I like this thought about the importance of priorities and friendships.

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.

My kids like to learn this one because they can yell, "WHAT IS IT????"
