    Like an epitaph of the future, with love remaining in her poetry. Leaving her heart to all who seek. (Report) Reply

    One never knows, dear Sara, how your work will be received by some reader 65 years after your death by suicide. Sara was praised in her day for the evocative intensity of her poetry. Compare Sara's brief poem to the lengthy and diffuse poem about unicorns and wormsnails in the sky.

    The brevity of Teasdale's poem demonstrates the poet's ability to evoke in a few well-chosen words the intense passion the poet feels about the love she has expressed (the 'it' of the title and the 'it' of lines 3,5 and 6) in her poetry. The sense of this short poem compares well to Shakespeare's sonnets where the same feeling is expressed about poetry at greater length. So long as this poem is read, she says, so long will my love live in these words. Teasdale gives the gift of literary immortality to her loved one.

    Honestly, sometimes one can only gasp with amazement at the lack of perception in some of the readers who have the audacity to tell a dead poet that she 'will go far as a story writer'! (Report) Reply

When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
