Sara Teasdale (Сара Тисдейл)


Barter


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 your spirit's still delight,
Holy thoughts that star the night.

Spend 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 ecstacy
Give all you have been, or could be.



Sara Teasdale's other poems:
  1. Come
  2. The Fountain
  3. Two Songs for Solitude
  4. Night Song of Amalfi
  5. Leaves
