Time…to sit and stare

I thought I’d share this poem with you today. How often do we take time to sit and stare, and take in the natural beauty all around us? Most of the photos are my own.

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.

By William Henry Davies.

  1. Thank you for delightful pictures! And my mom’s favourite poem – something I often think about. I think in today’s world, we rush children around too much. To develop imagination is the most important thing, and taking time to stand and stare is so necessary to that end.

  2. Hi, Malla. I totally agree with you. I’m 69 today. Where on earth have the years gone? Time passes us by so quickly. Time to sit and stare…something I find myself doing so much more in later years. Time to take in the beauty all around.
