Impromtu trip to Wales

We decided we needed a break! Within a couple of days we had packed up and left.
And we were not disappointed by what we found...

With sweeping breathtaking views on our doorstep to match.

That first day we took our time to slowly explore...
To allow ourselves to get a little lost...

To drink it all in.

To borrow another's words:
 '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 if, full of care,

 We have no time to stand and stare.' - William Henry Davies
