William Davis is a famous for the simplicity, clarity and sincerity of his poems. ‘Leisure’ is a simple but forceful poem in which he advises us not to fall a prey to hurry and haste. He feels sorry at the miserable plight of the modern man.
The poet says that modern man has become the slave of Time. He remains busy in gathering wealth and making progress from morning till late at night. He has no time to rest. He can not enjoy himself of the beauties of nature.
The tragedy of modern man does not end here. He has a lot many things to worry about. He lives under constant stress and strain. We have become machines by reaming in the company of machines.
We are unable to spare some moments of leisure to refresh our minds by standing among the hills and trees. In the poet’s opinion, our slavery to Time is the greatest curse of the modern age. He also advises us how to make use of our leisure. (172 words)
