I meant to…

“So what could I do but laugh and go?”

I Meant to Do My Work Today

I meant to do my work today —
But a brown bird sang in the apple tree,
And a butterfly flitted across the field,
And all the leaves were calling me.

And the wind went sighing over the land,
Tossing the grasses to and fro,
And a rainbow held out its shining hand —
So what could I do but laugh and go?

~Richard Le Gallienne (1866–1947)
