    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.

Best Poem of Sara Teasdale

Advice To A Girl

No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed;
Lay that on your heart,
My young angry dear;
This truth, this hard and precious stone,
Lay it on your hot cheek,
Let it hide your tear.
Hold it like a crystal
When you are alone
And gaze in the depths of the icy stone.
Long, look long and you will be blessed:
No one worth possessing
Can be quite possessed.

Fear

I am afraid, oh I am so afraid!
The cold black fear is clutching me to-night
As long ago when they would take the light
And leave the little child who would have prayed,
Frozen and sleepless at the thought of death.
My heart that beats too fast will rest too soon;
I shall not know if it be night or noon, --
Yet shall I struggle in the dark for breath?
Will no one fight the Terror for my sake,
