Theme vs. Topic

Watch this video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5LdNTLnVVd8 Read the Poem: “A Time to Talk” by Robert Frost  WHEN a friend calls to me from the road  And slows his horse to a meaning 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?  5 No, not as there is a time to talk. I thrust my hoe in the mellow ground,  Blade­end up and five feet tall, And plod: I go up to the stone wall  For a friendly visit. 10
