Every summer our kiddos partake once of the ice cream truck’s delights. It was just this morning when Jed mentioned to me that we hadn’t heard the truck all summer. Lo and behold—down the street just now came the musical vehicle! We ran to grab our wallets and enjoy. :)
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, 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 if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.
