Love Of Life

LOVE you not the tall trees spreading wide their branches, Cooling with their green shade the sunny days of June Love you not the little bird lost among the leaflets, Dreamily repeating a quaint, brief tune

Is there not a joy in the waste windy places; Is there not a song by the long dusty way Is there not a glory in the sudden hour of struggle Is there not a peace in the long quiet day

Love you not the meadows with the deep lush grasses; Love you not the cloud-flocks noiseless in their flight? Love you not the cool wind that stirs to meet the sunrise; Love you not the stillness of the warm summer night

Have you never wept with a grief that slowly passes Have you never laughed when a joy goes running by Know you not the peace of rest that follows labor You have not learnt to live then; how can you dare to die

connotation


Love you not the meadows with the deep lush grasses; Love you not the cloud-flocks noiseless in their flight? Love you not the cool wind that stirs to meet the sunrise; Love you not the stillness of the warm summer night

Dictions

Have you never wept......Is there not a joy in the waste windy places; Is there not a song by the long dusty way Is there not a glory in the sudden hour of struggle Is there not a peace in the long quiet day
