Leisure – By William Henry Davies – Re-worked

What is this life if, full of care,
We have no time
To stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows (and hogs and dogs and deer and hedgehogs and koala and giraffe?);
No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where Squirrels hide their nuts in grass:
No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:
No time to turn at Beauty’s glance, and watch his feet, how they can dance:
No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began?
A poor life this if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

      1. Very much so. I’m enjoying blogging, and my blog goes beyond my study with OCA. However I’m in a little bit of doubt as to whether I will be able to start. I’ve had no luck with housing at all and it isn’t looking hopefully. UCA are happy for me to leave deferring until the day before enrollment, which is a positive at least. Fingers crossed at the moment.
