Sara Teasdale Quotes

  • ''“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.” ''

    Lost as a light is lost in light.” ''

    Shakes out her rain drenched hair,

    When rain bends down the bough.
    And I shall be more silent and cold hearted
    Than you are now”''

    Blinding the north as it went by

    Good only to make wishes on
    And then forever to be gone” ''

    They came to tell your faults to me, They named them over one by one; I laughed aloud when they were done, I knew them all so well before,-- Oh, they were blind, too blind to see Your faults had made me love you more.” ''

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.

Broadway

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.
