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, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

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 is if, full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

This is my favourite poem. I was inspired by it in my first term to create a series of images showing how humans are destroying the natural environment. I thought it fit quite well. I once again love the images the poem can conjour up in your mind. It is beautiful. My work is inspired by poetry because I like to have a meaning in all of my images, sometimes hidden but with a little digging you can find it. I also like people to make up their own minds as to the meaning of my images, I do not like to steer them in one direction.
