days (Philip Larkin)

Days


 

 

What are days for?


Days are where we live,


They come, they wake us


Time and time over,


They are to be happy in:


Where can we live but days?


 

Ah, solving that question


Brings the priest and the doctor


In their long coats


Running over the fields.
