    The poem divides into two; an introduction and the main section starting ‘Slave to a springtime passion for the earth.’

Poem of the Day

poet Sara Teasdale

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.
