Great Time
written by William Henry Davies
From "The Bird of Paradise", 1914 Link to further information

Sweet Chance, that led my steps abroad,
  Beyond the town, where wild flowers grow -
A rainbow and a cuckoo, Lord,
  How rich and great the times are now!
      Know, all ye sheep
      And cows, that keep

On staring that I stand so long
  In grass that's wet from heavy rain -
A rainbow and a cuckoo's song
  May never come together again;
      May never come
      This side the tomb.
