The Telephone by Robert Frost

        The Telephone
        by Robert Frost

        “WHEN I was just as far as I could walk   
        From here to-day,   
        There was an hour   
        All still   
        When leaning with my head against a flower
        I heard you talk.   
        Don’t say I didn’t, for I heard you say—   
        You spoke from that flower on the window sill—   
        Do you remember what it was you said?”   

        “First tell me what it was you thought you heard.”

        “Having found the flower and driven a bee away,   
        I leaned my head,   
        And holding by the stalk,   
        I listened and I thought I caught the word—   
        What was it? Did you call me by my name?
        Or did you say—   
        Someone said ‘Come’—I heard it as I bowed.”   

        “I may have thought as much, but not aloud.”   

        “Well, so I came.”

If only all communication were so easy!

I hope you have a good Sunday.
