'Leisure' poems

leisure poem

The cows and sheep stand beneath the branches but we are worse than sheep and cows. Read between the lines Morag and co! Then build inside nerves of steel Strength of iron so great In the kiln of your own brick Control what you create Take the helm, but do not seal The course of actions done Know the plan, but do not trick Make hay under the sun. No time to see, in broad daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. Time has stripped the deciduous trees of their once vibrant autumn leaves, which have long since abandoned the branches to be raked up and wither into mulch. Appreciate nature We must ensure we put aside sufficient time to enjoy what God has given us - the beauty of nature around us. He simply pursues his vision of excellence through whatever he is doing, and leaves others to determine whether he is working or playing. The worldly worries have snatched his freedom and his life has become dull and colorless.

BA English Notes, Poem, LEISURE by William Davis

leisure poem

Surely, it will be a poor life indeed if we pack our lives so full of care that we have no time for leisure. It would be glorious to see mankind at leisure for once. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began. They bring pleasure back into our homes by spreading their fragrance.

Leisure Poem by William Henry Davies

leisure poem

The first human face I saw on the sidewalk, I lost half my charge right there. The scene is as captivating as the twinkling of the stars in the sky. That leaves the odd 'streams full of stars' - glittering in the sunlight, perhaps? The poet is very disheartened by the fact that today human beings are deprived of the common pleasures which are accessible to all. Then I'd put on my clothes and I'd walk outside, and the sunlight was brilliant, and the sounds were great. Is it not about their fragrance and how amazing it is that they share their life with you. No time to wait till her mouth can Enrich that smile her eyes began.
