W H Davies (Poet)
William Henry Davies was born in South Wales, and spent many years drifting around the UK and USA. He spent his years as a peddler and street singer while living in homeless shelters and doss houses. He published his first volume of poems in 1905, and more poems and prose works followed, noted for Davies’ love of nature, childlike wonder, and simple descriptions of hard living. He caught the attention of the Georgian literati including George Bernard Shaw, W B Yeats and Ezra Pound as well as such eminent artists as Augustus John and Walter Sickert. “Leisure” was first published in a collection called Songs of Joys and Others in 1911.
