Days by Philip Larkin

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.

I really like the visual this image conveys, a priest and a shrink, running full pelt across a filed to answer life's questions for you
