Leisure

You learn meditation and suddenly,
You have lots and lots of mirth
Your life becomes heavenly,
that too, right here on earth!

You surely will have:

Time to stand beneath the boughs,
And stare as long as sheep and cows: (if thats what you really want to do!)

Time to see, when woods you pass, (lil tough if you live in mumbai, but what the heck)
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass:

time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night:

All the time to turn at Beauty's glance,
And watch her feet, see how they can dance:

And time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began!

A super life this, when full of Grace,
you start coming first in almost every race!

W.H. Davies had obviously never done an Art of Living course :)
He should read this! :)

Finally i figured how i can post comments...yay(victory dance)

To all those cynics who use Davies' work as and when convenient..this will definately be an eye opener..
i loved it..its true yes plus flavour...maybe this was what he actually wanted to convey..he'll be smiling ear to ear in his grave Im sure!
And so we stared on and on and on...
