Beauty and Mystery in Druid Hill Park

Time To Stand And Stare

Snow cover under clear, melting skies is bright and cheerful. Under pewter heavens, it is occasion to be somber and reflective and chilly. William Henry Davies (1870-1940) was a panhandling American hobo who rode the rails until a train cut off a foot, and he became observer and poet. In “Leisure”, Davies wrote, “What is this life if, full of care, we have no time to stand and stare.”
