"Days Too Short"

Random Poetry List XXV

Days Too Short

When primroses are out in Spring,
   And small, blue violets come between;
   When merry birds sing on boughs green,
And rills, as soon as born, must sing;

When butterflies will make side-leaps,
   As though escaped from Nature's hand
   Ere perfect quite; and bees will stand
Upon their heads in fragrant deeps;

When small clouds are so silvery white
   Each seems a broken rimmèd moon—
   When such things are, this world too soon,
For me, doth wear the veil of Night.

William Henry Davies (b. 1871)
