    “Leisure” by W. H. Davies

    26/03/2020 Duración: 04min

    “Leisure” by W. H. Davies What is this life if, full of care,We have no time to stand and stare. No time to stand beneath the boughsAnd 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 canEnrich that smile her eyes began. A poor life this if, full of care,We have no time to stand and stare. xx

    "Out Here On This Very Day” by Prince Neptune (Cody Simpson) Out here on this very dayWe journey further into the illusionAdrift in the great dreamYearning for entry into the severed realm Do you know that the death of earth soon come?Do you know the progress of destruction?Do you know the strange new topography of the coast? Life closes in slowly around usAnd we seek salvation in copulationIn drugsAnd by sunset we ascendOnly to find that our mindsAnd our bodiesWeren't ours at all.Follow Prince Neptune @princeneptunepoetand @codysimpson xx
