Peace - Poem by Sara Teasdale

Peace flows into me
As the tide to the pool by the shore;
It is mine forevermore,
It ebbs not back like the sea.

I am the pool of blue
That worships the vivid sky;
My hopes were heaven-high,
They are all fulfilled in you.

I am the pool of gold
When sunset burns and dies--
You are my deepening skies,
Give me your stars to hold.

    Is it possible to fall in love with a poem? Is it possible to go out and find a man to love so you can feel like this poem? Is it possible there are lovelier lines than these? - - - - - - - ]
    I am the pool of gold
    When sunset burns and dies-
    You are my deepening skies,
    Give me your stars to hold.

    You are my deepening skies,
    Give me your stars to hold,
    Amazing imagery and conceptualization. Thanks for sharing it here.
