I carry the poem ‘Barter’ by Sara Teasdale in my heart. I was first exposed to it as a 13 year old and it has stayed with me ever since. I especially like the lines “Life has loveliness to sell / Music like a curve of gold” and later, “And for your spirit’s still delight / Holy thoughts that fill the night.”
It reminds me of all the wonders and glories of life well lived or simply enjoyed.
