I Thought Of You Poem by Sara Teasdale

I Thought Of You

Rating: 3.2


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.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea --
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.

she is not talking about 'the sea' - she is talking about lake Michigan, where she often spent weeks with her St. Louis family, at the beach near Traverse City, Michigan

The obscure hippie group " PEARLS BEFORE SWINE" has made a beautiful tune to this most haunting poem. They have combined it with some verses taken from Shakespeare's " The Tempest" - and they have called it " Full Fathom Five / I Shall Not Care." It is available for listening on Spotify.
