We are a worldwide social network of freethinkers, atheists, agnostics and secular humanists.

Leisure

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.

I always like the ones that are simplistic in phrase, yet deep in meaning.

This one is not my favorite. I like the sentiment more than I like the verse. But it's not awful. A line I do hate though is "And stare as long as sheep and cows," which to me seems a bit silly, and spoils the finesse of the poem.
