We have no time to stand and stare?--
No time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and [chooks]:
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."
-- the poem "Leisure" by William Henry Davies, the Welshman, slight modifications by Hilltops free range
