"Barter" is the favorite poem of my life. I have recited it many times.
Sometimes I recite it when
I run. "...Spend all you have for loveliness. Buy it and never count the
cost, For one white shining hour of peace spent many a year of strfe well
lost, And for a breath of ectasy Give all you have been or could be."
Thank you Sara Teasdale.

I've kept a copy of this poem in my wallet for over 20 years. It's a
reminder (to me) of what's really important in this life.

I had the privilege of singing the SSA version of this song. It is
absolutely beautiful.

This poem giving pleasure to the sense. We should avail ourselvesof these
gifts. We should enjoy ourselves in the lap of nature. We should buy
happiness at any cost. We hsould not feel sorry if we gain inward happiness
at the cost of worldly success.

When I was in high school in Puerto Rico almost 50 years ago, we had to
memorize a poem by an American poet. I chose "Life has loveliness to
sell..." I recited it with all of the passion of youth, but it is still my
very favorite poem.
