Leisure, W.H. Davies


What is this life, so full of care,

We have no time to stand and stare?


No time to stand beneath the boughs

And stare as long as sheep or cows:


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 her feet, how they 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.


Take some time to stand, stare and capture what you see when you are at a a full stop. Note it and record it as a memory to find when life gets stressful.
