Daydream - Arthur Seymour John Tessimond


One day people will touch and talk perhaps easily,


And loving be natural as breathing and warm as sunlight,


And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted,


Unfold and yawn and stretch and spread their fingers,


Unfurl, uncurl like seaweed returned to the sea,


And work will be simple and swift as a seagull flying,


And play will be casual and quiet as a seagull settling,


 And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder or care or notice,


And people will smile without reason,


Even in winter, even in the rain.

  2. Absolutely beautiful! Loved these lines:
    "And people will untie themselves, as string is unknotted..."
    "And work will be simple and swift as a seagull flying..."
    "And the clocks will stop, and no one will wonder or care or notice..."

    A magnificent vision which if unrealizable in society at large one can at least fulfil in one's own life.
