Wisdom -- Sara Teasdale

Guest poem submitted by Lieven Marchand :
(Poem #1677) Wisdom
 When I have ceased to break my wings
 Against the faultiness of things,
 And learned that compromises wait
 Behind each hardly opened gate,
 When I have looked Life in the eyes,
 Grown calm and very coldly wise,
 Life will have given me the Truth,
 And taken in exchange -- my youth.
-- Sara Teasdale
Here's another one from Sara Teasdale. It's very simple and expresses
beautifully the involuntary bargain most of us make when growing up.

Lieven Marchand.

I think Sara Teasdale is truly wonderful! You never have to think about what
she means - it is all so simple and straight forward. It is refreshing to
read but always thought provoking.

Common sense is not so common.

Couldn't resist this:
Foolishness
I’ve made every mistake known to man
Into the fire, out of the pan;
And though I came out none the worse,
My loved ones did their fortune curse;
And often they would me condemn,
For all the heartache I caused them.
But now I’m older and looking wise
They come to me – for advice!
