    My wife and I think of " To One Away" as our poem. When I studied abroad she sent it to me. In this Covid-19 crisis I have sent it to her because she is in a rehab center.

Best Poem of Sara Teasdale

Alone

I am alone, in spite of love,
In spite of all I take and give—
In spite of all your tenderness,
Sometimes I am not glad to live.

I am alone, as though I stood
On the highest peak of the tired gray world,
About me only swirling snow,
Above me, endless space unfurled;

With earth hidden and heaven hidden,
And only my own spirit's pride
To keep me from the peace of those
Who are not lonely, having died.
