Poetry @ Create A Connection

Hello, it's been a few days since I posted. Besides some medication changes, which I'm adjusting to, and life stuff, I apparently have writer's block too. Haven't been writing anything or doing anything creative for several days now. I did read a pretty good novel though, so that's a good thing. Maybe my muse will come back to me for Christmas. :)

Anyway, LaToya, the new resident poet on Saturdays at CAC, has asked us to post a poem (or poems) that describes the essence of who we are right now and inspires us to be the best we can be. I don't know that the following poem does what she asked, but it's always been a favorite of mine, has a good message, and is the only whole poem I still know by heart from my school days in the sixties, so I thought I'd share it with you now. When I find a poem that does describe the essence of me at this time in my life I'll post it too. OK? :)

Sara Teasdale

Into my heart's treasury
I slipped a coin
That time cannot take
Nor a thief purloin

Oh better than the minting
Of a gold crowned king
Is the safe kept memory
Of a lovely thing

I have never read this poem before. I really like it. I have poems like that too...that stick with me and I am not exactly sure why...just the turn of the phrase that stays with me.

Remember there is not a wrong or right way! I liked the poem and smiled while reading it twice. Great choice!
