Re: Leisurely Scribbles (part 5)

I was saving this for later in the year, but, what the heck...



John Keats, 1795 - 1821

Season of mists and mellow fruitfulness,
Close bosom-friend of the maturing sun;
Conspiring with him how to load and bless
With fruit the vines that round the thatch-eves run;
To bend with apples the moss’d cottage-trees,
And fill all fruit with ripeness to the core;
To swell the gourd, and plump the hazel shells
With a sweet kernel; to set budding more,
And still more, later flowers for the bees,
Until they think warm days will never cease,
For summer has o’er-brimm’d their clammy cells.

Leisure

William Henry Davies

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.


This poem was my mantra in another life.

What an evocative post, a light bulb moment, thanks El Spitto
for taking me back to the old days of OLD ENGLAND .

ENGLAND does still exist, but apart from the rare invocation experienced by yon lad, it exists only in pictures, poetry & our hearts and minds.

Captain Pugsy, my mind was altered by this piece of music, petitioned in a advert.




Mind blowing.
