Are you addicted to being "busy, busy, busy"?

This week we thought we’d have a change and bring some culture to our blog (!). So here goes…
Like us, you probably haven’t heard this poem since your school days, but it sums up perfectly what we’re missing out on these days.
"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
