Quotable / Monday Poetry Blogging

A poor life this if, full of care, We have no time to stand and stare. -- William H. Davies (1871 - 1940), poet and writer
How perfectly suited to a Monday! As we all know -- or at least I would dare say a majority of Internet-savvy folks have experienced -- Monday is a day of racing around. It's the beginning of a new work week, and all the incomplete tasks from the previous week come hurtling at you, competing with all the new crap you have to deal with. And this is right after an all-too-brief weekend in which you probably rushed about trying to complete hundreds of personal tasks, all the while trying to find the time for some much needed relaxation. Phew! By the way, today's quotable is the final two lines from W.H. Davies' poem, Leisure -- and they are probably what he is best known for. Did you know there was a whole (albeit brief) poem attached to these sage words? Take a little time today and go check out the full version.

Oh I stop and stare each day - usually in disbelief of all I have to do.
