Advice To A Girl
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
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.
There Will Come Soft Rain
There will come soft rain and the smell of the ground,
And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;

And frogs in the pools singing at night,
A Winter Night
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.
After Love
There is no magic any more,
We meet as other people do,
You work no miracle for me
Nor I for you.

“Stephen kissed me in the spring, Robin in the fall, But Colin only looked at me And never kissed at all. Stephen’s kiss was lost in jest, Robin’s lost in play, But the kiss in Colin’s eyes Haunts me night and day.”

“I am not yours, not lost in you, Not lost, although I long to be Lost as a candle lit at noon, Lost as a snowflake in the sea. You love me, and I find you still A spirit beautiful and bright, Yet I am I, who long to be Lost as a light is lost in light.”

Oh, the internet! I have always loved the poem 'Faces, ' had it written out in a notebook from way back in the 70's. Funniest thing, it was attributed to SOCRATES, bot Sara Teasdale, in my notes. LOL I guess it is not as old as I thought.

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.

One of my students used this source for a project. I had to mark her down drastically due to the inaccuracy and biased interpretation of Sara Teasdale's life. There is a multitude of examples in which this biography crosses the line from objective into subjective. Never have I read such a poorly-educated interpretation of Sara Teasdale's life. I'm incredibly disappointed. If only my student had checked her sources...

She did not commit suicide. Coroner reports it was an accident after conducting an autopsy. Wikipedia also has its facts wrong. See the archived NY Times column in the link below. https: //

Her poetry is a pleasure to read. It captures the moods and emotions and the nuances of human relationships beautifully and is meticulous in their expression. I love it.

Sara Teasdale is, I think, one of the most wonderful poets who ever lived! The imagery created by her poems is exquisite. She has been my greatest inspiration to be a poet and I could never thank her enough, if I could, for how she has changed my life and influenced my writing.
