Happy Monday, dear reader. How are you this glorious morning?

Spring has most definitely sprung in lovely Vienna and as a huge fan of the seasons, I am feeling cheerful, fortunate and so excited about the warmer months to come.

Here’s a poem I found that pretty much sums up my mood. I’ve taken the line “Spend all you have for loveliness” as permission to buy myself a new Yumiko leotard for class…why not, right? 🙂

I hope the weather is nice where you are and wish you a wonderful start to the week!


Barter by Sara Teasdale

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.
