The Telephone -- Robert Frost

Guest poem sent in by Radhika Gowaikar
(Poem #1324) The Telephone
 "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."
-- Robert Frost
Text within *s in italics.
From Louis Untermeyer's 'Robert Frost's Poems.'

I like Robert Frost. Usually, it is the way his intellect and wit
simultaneously shine through his verse that I appreciate most. But this
poem appeals to me differently. I like its simplicity (and that of its
characters) and the 'telephone' is just such a sweet notion. The
artlessness of the "Well, so I came." always makes me smile. I think this
poem shows a different facet of the genius that is Frost.
