Poetry-Inspired Journal Art
On Saturday after some very quiet time, I found this poem as I looked through a book of poems we have. Then I wrote it in my art journal.
I thought the imagery was intriguing. So today I did a watercolor lightly on top of it.

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 and cows.
No time to see, when woods we pass, where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.
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.
Have a wonderful day and give someone you love a big hug! 😀
