{Daisy Field...}

Daisy's, one of my favorite flowers.
and a poem to share
Leisure

What is this life if, full of care,
We have not time to stand and stare,

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare a 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 star, 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.

~W.H. Davies
