Grade 6 Reading Lesson 5 Poetry – Leisure

Leisure, by W.H. Davies, is a simple yet beautiful and thought provoking poem where the poet wonders whether it is worth leading a life which provides one with no time for leisure.
When I am now engaged in a mobile telephone conversation while walking along countryside, I think of Davies and end that call. See if this poem inspires you to give some more thought to your surroundings, and feel for its beauty during your free time.
