Barter.. (The Sources of Loveliness and Joy)
February 10, 2007 12:36am CST
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. For all those who're in love and are recently in-love, this poem is for each and every one of us!;) Enjoy Valentines Day..

So friend, is this an original poem? Do we need to give you credit when we use it? I like it a lot, but I do want to give credit where credit is due. I may print this in a nice font on good quality paper and frame it for my loved one.
