    Barter

    Life has loveliness to sell-
    All beautiful and splendid things.
    The meadowlark in downy dress
    in mellow notes he gayly sings.
    Thick green grass in pastures wide
    and pine trees on a mountainside.

    Life has loveliness to sell-
    Raindrops falling like a screen
    bringing with them life and hope.
    Sounds of children's happy laughter
    ringing through our minds long after.

    -C. Porter

    Life is lovely and more. Just the fact that so many people are much more than they seem, much deeper than anyone seems to understand. Poetry is such a gift and sometimes even a bit of a lifesaver.

    All free...yet, they are the finer things in life. A fast paced world misses all this. Good poem!

    Thanks, I have been reading yours, too, takes a little longer to get through the material, but it's captivating.

    Sounds like a nice trade. Maybe in another life- I'm too much of a hellraiser. 10 from me

    Thanks for reading and commenting

    Poetry is finer and more philosophical than history; for poetry expresses the universal, and history only the particular.

    Aristotle (384 BC-322 BC) Greek philosopher.
