Good Fences

“Good fences make good neighbors.” So ponders Robert Frost in his poem, “Mending Wall.”

While many debate this statement’s truth, I suggest the converse is true, “Good neighbors make good fences” — fences upon which children play, upon which friends lean, across which neighbors chat. Good neighbors make good fences that declare, “I respect you,” rather building walls to keep things in or out. Good neighbors make good fences that invite rather than dissuade. Good neighbors create good fences that are places of conversation and friendship.
