A new life

This poem has been sitting on my desk for some time, and most days I read it. It came as a wonderful card reminding me of SARA TEASDALE and her romantic poetry. Seems like a good time to remember how good life is. Welcome to the new little Prince Cambridge.

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 ecstasy
Give all you have been, or could be.

Many thanks JAG for your inspiring artwork!
