U and us 1


so the candle burns lightening the room
and giving heat like two bodies touching at noon
i will sit and wait till the time is set
and ripe for me to stick my neck and bet
until it burs to a point when the room is lit up
then i know that its time to take up

you are to my countenance joy
and to my heart conquering like troy
your eyes pierce my heart
leaving me no option than in love to act

come i'll stroke your hair
don't leave me oh! lady fair
go nowhere rather sit on my lap
while i admire you and to the almighty lower my cap

poet Sara Teasdale

"Oh Day of Fire and Sun"
by Sara Teasdale

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

Laughter and hearts so high
That the spirit flew off free,
