Poetry Friday: Advice to a Girl

Current Mood: excited
Current Song: Fever by Michael Buble

No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
This truth, this hard and precious stone,
Lay it on your hot cheek,
Let it hide your tear.
Hold it like a crystal
When you are alone
And gaze in the depths of the icy stone.
Long, look long and you will be blessed:
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed.

-- Advice to a Girl by Sara Teasdale

Isn't that fantastic?

Listen to the lyrics in the song Rinse by Vanessa Carlton also.

I love Sara Teasdale's poetry, but hadn't read this one, so thank you for sharing.

Thanks

Like queen_of_ocd I love Sara Teasdale's poetry ("There Will Come Soft Rains" is one of my favorites) but I hadn't read that one.

Thankyou.
