THIS SEASON'S SOUNDS PART II


TAMBOURINE TREES





'LEISURE'


What is this life, if, full of care,
We have no time to stand & 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, likes 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 it, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

-W.H Davies
