    Sarah Teasdale had to love the ocean and the beach. It was there that she incarnated her loneliness, her passion and her losses into the language of the heart. In that instant she is using artistic license. I thought we all do this. May she rest in peace…

    It seems as though Sarah has been more or less forgotten and disregarded as a true poet over the years.
    Her range might be limited but she spoke so genuinely and passionately about her experiences it’s hard to put her on the shelf of yesteryear.
    All dead poets collect dust over time but I find her poems to be vibrant and fresh even in the 21st century.
    She is probably my favorite poet on this site.

    SHE WAS A GREAT POET. THOUGHTS ARE SURCHAGED WITH POWERFUL EMOTION BUT EXPRESSED WITH ALL INGENUITY AND LUCIDITY, I DO APPRECIATE TOO MUCH

    She's a great poet and I love all of her stuff; it's so emotional! :)

May Wind

I said, "I have shut my heart
As one shuts an open door,
That Love may starve therein
And trouble me no more."

But over the roofs there came
The wet new wind of May,
And a tune blew up from the curb
Where the street-pianos play.
