WH DAVIES- A POEM SUITABLE FOR COVID 19 LOCKDOWN.

 

 

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 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, 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.

 

 Soo, besides this,one focuses on important issues.

 

1. I am about to re-lace my boots using a scientific method reported in a news paper.

 

2. I decided to grow a long mustache/ bigote, I may wax it to turn it up at the ends. Or maybe have one end turned up and the other down. My wife has so far deterred me from dying it bright blue.
