Artist's Description

High in Cumbria, Writer’s Cottage (near Alston) was a wonderful place not to ‘stand and stare’ (sorry, W H Davies, below), but simply to ‘sit and stare’. The changes in light, with time of day and variations in cloud cover, was amazing. I have a series of photographs I must put into a collage to show this.

What is this life, if full of care,
We have no time to stand and stare.

No time to stand beneath the boughs
And stare as long as sheep or cows.

No time to see, when woods we pass,
Where squirrels hide their nuts in grass.

No time to see, in broad daylight,
Streams full of stars, like skies at night.

No time to turn at Beauty’s glance,
And watch her feet, how they can dance.

No time to wait till her mouth can
Enrich that smile her eyes began.

A poor life this, if full of care,
We have not time to stand and stare.
