Day 946: Riches

Lovely and true, as are all of Sara Teasdale's musings. Thoughts, like any wealth, must be 'spent' to be truly enjoyed. To be miserly with them just won't do.

Riches- Sara Teasdale
I have no riches but my thoughts,
     Yet these are wealth enough for me;
My thoughts of you are golden coins
     Stamped in the mint of memory;
And I must spend them all in song,
     For thoughts, as well as gold, must be
Left on the hither side of death
     To gain their immortality.
