I really enjoyed this poem. This poem talks about the importance of
friendship and making time for friends, even if it means postponing your
work for a while, to take care of your friend.

I think Frost shows one of the most important values of the real world. He
describes the human desires through his thoughts and feelings to find and
meet a real friend where no friends could not find...

This poem paints the picture of frienship. It shows that a friend in need
can stop time. It forces you to wonder how it would make the person who
wants to talk feel by the way you answer him. It may be easier to just call
over and ask what they want but to be a true friend is to give up your own
time to be there for someone else and really try to listen. This is the
kind of thing that friendship is valued on.

I really like this poem. We all know that work will help us live life...but
so will friends. They help us through many times of lonelyness and
depression. To give have it given back to them can mean the world to

I would have to agree with one of the comments stated previously. I do
believe that this poem is saying that there is a Time do your work, and try
to be beneficial and prosperous with your time. But that is not all that
matters in life. When someone calls out for help- dont just stand at a
distance and see what is wrong, you need to take time out of your busy life
and go and see what they need. I mean, wouldnt you want them to do the same
for you?

respect other people

Either This poem is telling you to be friendly or its telling you not to
let the oppurtunity for a good rest go by.Ha!

I think in this poem, Mr Frost shows his that he has his priorities as a
human being straight. Human interaction. We thrive on it.
