Oh, the internet! I have always loved the poem 'Faces, ' had it written out in a notebook from way back in the 70's. Funniest thing, it was attributed to SOCRATES, bot Sara Teasdale, in my notes. LOL I guess it is not as old as I thought.

My wife and I think of " To One Away" as our poem. When I studied abroad she sent it to me. In this Covid-19 crisis I have sent it to her because she is in a rehab center.

The Best Poem Of Sara Teasdale

Advice To A Girl

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.
