500 followers!!! and a poem

Only yesterday I read at Koolcosherkitchen that she reached 500 followers. She is celebrating by a blog party and charade, and this is my contribution! I’m proud to announce that Curlygirlabroad also reached 500 followers!!!!

I’m super excited!!! This is so great, thank you all very much 😀

To celebrate both of our 500 followers, I’m sharing a poem with you all:

One Art

The art of losing isn’t hard to master;
so many things seem filled with the intent
to be lost that their loss is no disaster.

Lose something every day. Accept the fluster
of lost door keys, the hour badly spent.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

Then practice losing farther, losing faster:
places, and names, and where it was you meant 
to travel. None of these will bring disaster.

I lost my mother’s watch. And look! my last, or
next-to-last, of three loved houses went.
The art of losing isn’t hard to master.

I lost two cities, lovely ones. And, vaster,
some realms I owned, two rivers, a continent.
I miss them, but it wasn’t a disaster.

—Even losing you (the joking voice, a gesture
I love) I shan’t have lied.  It’s evident
the art of losing’s not too hard to master
though it may look like (Write it!) like disaster.

by Elizabeth Bishop

    The adorable, whimsical, and talented Curly Girl comes to the party with a poignant poem by a renowned American writer Elizabeth Bishop who spent her life “looking for something.” I am sure we can all relate to that!
    Please welcome the Curly Girl Abroad and join me in congratulating her on her own achievement – 500 followers! Keep on blogging!
