Dolce far niente


In this bustling life, 

Where we join the rat race, 

And run like a deer

There are days, 

When I just feel, 

To be dolce far niente, 

Like the hare during the race. 

The joy of being idle,

Is equal to bliss. 

Oh! Something that I wouldn’t want to miss. 

But this dolce far niente, 

Seems to dodge me a lot. 

Dolce far niente : An Italian phrase that means pleasantly doing nothing!!
