No Time


What about you?

Leisure by W. H. Davies

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:

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 if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

    Right now, I have a bit of time to appreciate small and big things. Thank God for that. There used to be a time when I was so busy that I had no more social life.

    Read your tweet. Congrats for being a finalist! Hope you and BW win.

    that’s a real deep poem bro. that’s why my philosophy nowadays is to stop and smell the roses – whenever I can 😉

    hey, I’m flattered by your prediction but I’d prefer my stocks to go higher hahaha.. 😆

    I guess that goes with age. ha ha ha. And no one can blame you for that. You are still young and full of life.

    But I am sure, you are enjoying every second of it. Not enough. Yes Of course. I know that. been like that years ago. but i got no regrets.

    Thanks for the visit.
