    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.

Read the full of Advice To A Girl


This is the quiet hour; the theaters
Have gathered in their crowds, and steadily
The million lights blaze on for few to see,
Robbing the sky of stars that should be hers.
A woman waits with bag and shabby furs,
A somber man drifts by, and only we
Pass up the street unwearied, warm and free,
For over us the olden magic stirs.
