What is this life if full of  care
We have no time to stand and stare?
No time to stand beneath the bows
And stare as long as sheep or cows.
no time to see in broad daylight,
streams full 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.  


W.H. Davies.  1871 - 1940

watercolour, inspired by Umberto Rossini
