“No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows”
The poet further points out simple delights of natural beauty. According to him, we miss the beautiful scenes of the squirrels running here and there hiding their nuts in the deep grass. The poet laments in the following lines of the poem:
“No time to see when woods we pass
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass”
The poet further points out and describes the most beautiful scenes which we miss because of a hurried life. In day time, when the sun shines and throws its rays on to the surface of water the rays scatter around and the place looks like the night full of stars. As we read in the following lines:
“No time to see, in broad daylight
Streams full of stars like skies at night”
Even we miss the dance of beauty and its smile because of a rushed life. Our scenes have become dull. We are busy in our worldly affairs. We have forgotten the meanings of leisure.Leisure is of supreme importance because it keeps us healthy in body and mind. But we are unfortunately busy in making money or adding to our material goods. Simple delights which nature and life have to offer escape our notice. The above are the simple delights, which we miss because of lack of time.No one can can be denied that W.Davies has very beautifully explained the poem “Leisure”.
