A Smile as Small as Mine by Emily Dickinson

They may not need me- yet they might

I’ll let my heart be just in sight-

A smile so small as mine might be

Precisely their necessity-

Your unofficial homework today is to keep your eyes open for someone who just might need a smile! Maybe you’ll brighten their day!

A Time to Talk by Robert Frost

When a friend calls to me from the road

And slows his horse to a meaning [purposeful] 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 [soft] ground

Blade-end up and five feet tall,

And plod: I go up to the stone wall

For a friendly visit.

Question: What was the person’s attitude toward his friend? Can it help me be a better friend?
