Friday Poetry: Viewing Time by E V Milner

What is this life if, freed from care,

We have no time- except to stare.

No time to savour food and drink,

Or read, or write, or sit and drink.

No time to paint, or play the flute,

or dig, or yarn, or bottle fruit.

No time for politics, or pubs,

Discussion groups, or drama clubs.

No time for charity, or church,

Or local history research.

No time to give the dog a walk,

Or play a parlour game, or talk...

A poor life like this, if we can spare

No time - except to sit and stare.
