Take Time To Stand Still



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 is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.


Leisure by William Henry Davies

Sometimes you just need to take time to slow down.  Even when you're really busy it pays to take time out to recharge your batteries, to keep your energy levels up and to enable you to work more productively
