1 Alkarma Language School By: William Henry Davies Leisure

2 Alkarma Language School 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 board daylight, Streams full of stars, like skies at night. O time to turn at Beautys 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
