One Art

    One Art The art of losing isn’t hard to master;so many things seem filled with the intentto be lost that their loss is no disaster, Lose something every day. Accept the flusterof lost door keys, the hour badly spent.The art of losing isn’t hard to master. Then practice losing farther, losing faster:places, and...Read More »
