    Does anyone have information about 'The Potter's Wheel', a paper created by several of Teasdale's contemporaries? I remember its existence at Missouri Historic Society but have read no mention of it in any Teasdale biography material. since that time (early 1960's) Each edition was handmade and passed to participating artists who added their contributions. Would like to know how long it was in existence and who participated in the composition.

    I'm a composer and songwriter that discovered the words of Sara Teasdale last year (2009) and chose to record a new album based on ten of her poems. The music is 21st century popular music, but it is written with respect to Sara's genius of prose. You can get a sneak preview of five tracks from this new album (due later in 2010) on my artist page in MySpace (http: // . Post comments there if you like. I hope this project meets with approval of the poetry community.

    The love thats in my heart for you Sara my sweet is as i have falling in-love for the first time. Your words bring a love that has been lost inside of my soul due to heartbreak from so many. There are no more women like you in the world. Peace be with you and you are and always will be loved by the world.

    An authentic poet that explains realities so nicely with a compressive outlook

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.

In The Train

Fields beneath a quilt of snow
From which the rocks and stubble sleep,
And in the west a shy white star
That shivers as it wakes from deep.

The restless rumble of the train,
The drowsy people in the car,
Steel blue twilight in the world,
And in my heart a timid star.
