The feet that inspire me

The feet that inspire me
My little angel and my little mischief

Leisure by W H Davies

I came across this poem on my Future Learn course. It is beautiful and perfect for taking a moment to contemplate the day either ahead or behind or both.

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 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.
W. H. Davies (1871-1940)
