I Meant to Do My Work Today
I meant to do my work today—
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.
And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand—
So what could I do but laugh and go?
Richard Le Gallienne
one of my absolute favourite poems, TY! xxx
Mine too Sarah 🙂 I love the gentle playful rhythm of the lines and of course the wonderful sentiment behind it all
