Barter

Credits:Dickens Art

Life has loveliness to sell,
All beautiful and splendid things;
Blue waves whitened on a cliff,
Soaring fire that sways and sings,
And children’s faces looking up,
Holding wonder like a cup.

Life has loveliness to sell;
Music like a curve of gold,
Scent of pine trees in the rain,
Eyes that love you, arms that hold,
And, for the Spirit’s still delight,
Holy thoughts that star the night.

Give all you have for loveliness;
Buy it, and never count the cost!
For one white, singing hour of peace
Count many a year of strife well lost;
And for a breath of ecstasy,
Give all you have been, or could be.

Poet: Sara Teasdale

    • Isn’t it?It’s so true….life is BEAUTIFUL!And after roaming around aimlessly in life, we realize that the serenity and euphoria we were in search for was long lost!We always have a choice, to give up everything we have to achieve it, only if we are honest!
