The Telephone

Post by Guest on Wed 30 Apr 2008, 1:37 am

.

........................."When I was just as far as I could walk
.........................From here today,
.........................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 windowsill--
.........................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."

...........................................Robert Frost

Yes Frost . . . the lip/tongue sounds roll from my mouth in the most pleasant way reading this. You are a master of subtle nuance.

Hugs, bev

Well if Prince Charles Can talk and listen to flowers .Why can't Robert Frost? I can't profess to being a great reader of his work. I found this poem to be interesting at first then blandish . A sort of snobbery in his surrounding .
Sorry, but not my taste . Thanks for posting this .

To each his own, Bobby! I think I see am impishness to it - likening a telephone hand piece to a flower and a stem. I think my life would be so much more interesting, if I could figure my washing machine for an object of my innermost appreciation, lol! :D
