    I know you asked Dann Glenn, but I can help you now so I might as well.

    The first 2 means play the second fret of the A-string.
    The 5 means play the fifth fret of the A-string. The four means fret the fourth fret of the A string. Then the last 2 means fret the secomnd fret of the D-String.

    No time is indicated, but I assume as the measure has only four notes, these are quarter notes and are all held for the same amount of time.

    If you need further explanation, please ask.
