What are days for?

Philip Larkin Quote: “What are days for? Days are where we live. They come,  they wake us Time and time over. Theyare to be happy in: Where can...”

“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.”
