Sara Teasdale:

Into my heart's treasury
I slipped a coin
That time cannot take
Nor thief purloin:

Oh, better than the minting
Of a gold-crowned king
Is the safe-kept memory
Of a lovely thing.

Thank you, Lies! Just call me Beth, btw.

I learned that poem when I was a little girl, and I still love it! I had a lovely great-aunt who gave me a book of poetry when I was only 8, and that was one of the poems. I still have the book, too.

All right, being a foreigner, I'm not the best person to quote an English poem but at least I can share The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost (= MacGyver episode) .You don't even have to like it but at least it's a reference (and I must confess I do like it):

Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler ,long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other ,as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim ,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that,the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh,I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood,and I-
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

(I have the book at home and if I misquoted it , It's my own fault though I doubled checked before sending it ...)
