"Days" by Philip Larkin

 

What are days for?

Days are where we live.

They come, they wake up

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.

 

Philip Larkin
