Rating: 3.5
My window-pane is starred with frost,
The world is bitter cold to-night,
The moon is cruel, and the wind
Is like a two-edged sword to smite.

My room is like a bit of June,

Mesmerizing and captivating, as I sit here typing this my own window frame is stirred with frost, and the sky is pitched black, pregnant with mystery. There is no other perfect time then winter, yet its also distressing that so many people still live homeless, the second stanza is sadly still important today as it was when she wrote it.

This is an intense poem of deep compassion. It is the noble that feels for the poor and poverty stricken. Heart rending!

Aching hearts take no comfort from luxuries of life. It is as cold and poor as a homeless one on street. Very touching poem.

A poem written from a compassionate heart. Yet another talented, tragic life- - Sara was sickly for most of her years, and finally took her own life. But her talent is her legacy.
