Gwenda’s story: ‘Barter’ by Sara Teasdale Tuesday, 12 January 2010

Posted by carryapoem in Stories.

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.
