Sarah Teasdale

Spend all you have for loveliness,

Buy it and never count the cost

Come See Julie Palmer's Poetry Reading

Always enjoy life. Never let something small hold you back. There are so many wonderful things in the world, so you must enjoy them. Sarah Teasdale translates this to beautiful poetic form in, "Barter." In her poem, Sara lists off, in her opinion, lovely parts of life. She speaks of enjoying the little things that make life splendid. In order to have an amazing life, you must, "Give all you have been, or could be." I would love to follow the advice of this poem, and I'm sure many you would too.
