promises

The woods are lovely dark and deep but I have promises to keep
and miles to go before I sleep and miles to go before I sleep.

reality

With a loving heart, be evenhanded to all, and the enlightenment of reality as such will spontaneously appear; if you keep a dualistic consciousness of others and self, you will not see the face of Buddha right in front of you.

Barter

Life has loveliness to sell
All beautiful and splendid things,
Blue waves lightened on a cliff
Soaring fire that sways and swings,
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 to 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.


-by Sara Teasdale
