What is this life if…..

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 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 can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

William Henry Davies

      Thanks a lot for your continued support 🙂 It means a lot to me. I guess you are off to another exotic location for 3 months. Which part of the world is it going to be this time ??? I will be looking forward to your updates and photographs 🙂

    Thank you Amrita for refreshing this jewel for me once again-it is very true for today’s scurried life.
