What is Life?
Such a wonderful sayings. Life is short and some people just do not have time to do the even simplest gesture of smiling at the beauty of the dawn, stopping by to smell the wonderful scent of flowers, lying down on the sand to admire the wonders of God's creations.. such a waste isn't it?
"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."
