what the meaning by this poem?...

.... perhaps that the finer and more precious things in life may be appreciated only if one pauses. That Nature, wherein Beauty may be found, when sought through slow contemplation, may ease the cares of this busy world. Martinevans123 (talk) 21:08, 18 January 2009 (UTC)

Apparently, Centreparcs and Orange Mobile have used the poem on their TV ads. I will add it to the main article Talskiddy 10:44, 13 October 2007 (UTC) —Preceding unsigned comment added by Talskiddy (talkcontribs)

Category:Welsh poems[edit]

I have corrected this to Category:English poems. Yes, Davies was born in Newport and thus Welsh by birth, although he was only `proud' of this fact when it suited him. In fact he found Welsh people in general "unfriendly", by choice spent most of his adult life away from Wales, and after marrying an English girl, retired to Nailsworth, Gloucestershire. He never spoke Welsh and certainly never wrote in Welsh. The poem, like most of Davies' work, has an universal theme, and not a Welsh one. This is an English poem written by a Welshman.

I see that my change has been reverted by Enidmawr (talk). I wonder could we agree the criteria for "Welsh Poem"? Martinevans123 (talk) 16:30, 14 April 2009 (UTC)
