The Darling Buds of May

 

 

Yes, I will spend the livelong day 
With Nature in this month of May; 
And sit beneath the trees, and share 
My bread with birds whose homes are there; 
While cows lie down to eat, and sheep 
Stand to their necks in grass so deep; 
While birds do sing with all their might, 
As though they felt the earth in flight. 
This is the hour I dreamed of, when 
I sat surrounded by poor men; 
And thought of how the Arab sat 
Alone at evening, gazing at 
The stars that bubbled in clear skies; 

And of young dreamers, when their eyes 
Enjoyed methought a precious boon 
In the adventures of the Moon 
Whose light, behind the Clouds' dark bars, 
Searched for her stolen flocks of stars. 
When I, hemmed in by wrecks of men, 
Thought of some lonely cottage then 
Full of sweet books; and miles of sea, 
With passing ships, in front of me; 
And having, on the other hand, 
A flowery, green, bird-singing land. 

William Henry Davies
