Treasure Island

Sara Teasdale

(8 August 1884 – 29 January 1933 / Missouri)

April Song


Willow, in your April gown
Delicate and gleaming,
Do you mind in years gone by
All my dreaming?

Spring was like a call to me
That I could not answer,
I was chained to loneliness,
I, the dancer.

Willow, twinkling in the sun,
Still your leaves and hear me,
I can answer spring at last,
Love is near me!

    The second stanza of this poem Spring was like a call to me that I could not answer is terrific, further words....I was chained to loneliness, I, the dancer....what a powerful expression. Only if someone could empathise with the agony expressed here. (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Edmund Spenser

My love is like to ice, and I to fire:
How comes it then that this her cold so great
Is not dissolved through my so hot desire,
But harder grows the more I her entreat?
