A Great Time

By William Henry Davies

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.
