A Summer's Noon
written by William Henry Davies
Nature Poems (1908) Link to further information




White lily clouds
In violet skies;
The Sun is at
His highest rise.

The Bee doth hum,
Every bird sings;
The Butterflies
Full stretch their wings.

The Brook doth dance
To his own song;
The Hawthorn now
Smells sweet and strong.

The green Leaves clap
Their wings to fly;
Like Birds whose feet
Bird lime doth tie.

Sing all you Birds,
Hum all you Bees;
Clap your green wings,
Leaves on the trees -

I'm one with all,
This present hour:
Things-far-away
Have lost their power.
