    1. I love Sara Teasdale's poetry in small doses. If you read too much of it at once, though, it gets to be decidedly too much on the same theme.This is the poem that introduced me to her work. I knew it by heart from that very first reading, and secretly (or not secretly, now), rather feel this way myself, sometimes. It speaks to a part of me that wants to be totally overwhelmed by love, anyway.I Am Not YoursI am not yours, not lost in you,Not lost, although I long to beLost as a candle lit at noon [...]

    2. IV. WisdomWhen I have ceased to break my wings Against the faultiness of things, And learned that compromises wait Behind each hardly opened gate, When I can look Life in the eyes, Grown calm and very coldly wise, Life will have given me the Truth, And taken in exchange -- my youth.The Wind in the HemlockSteely stars and moon of brass, How mockingly you watch me pass! You know as well as I how soonI shall be blind to stars and moon, Deaf to the wind in the hemlock tree, Dumb when the brown earth [...]

    3. Alone 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. I am alone, as though I stood On the highest peak of the tired gray world, About me only swirling snow, Above me, endless space unfurled; With earth hidden and heaven hidden, And only my own spirit's pride To keep me from the peace of those Who are not lonely, having died. Beautiful

    4. The Flight We are two eaglesFlying togetherUnder the heavens,Over the mountains,Stretched on the wind.Sunlight heartens us,Blind snow baffles us,Clouds wheel after usRavelled and thinned.We are like eagles,But when Death harries us,Human and humbledWhen one of us goes,Let the other follow,Let the flight be ended,Let the fire blacken,Let the book close.Teasdale's third poetry collection, Rivers to the Sea, was published in 1915 and was a best seller, being reprinted several times. A year later, i [...]

    5. There Will Come Soft RainsThere will come soft rains and the smell of the ground,And swallows circling with their shimmering sound;And frogs in the pools singing at night,And wild plum trees in tremulous white;Robins will wear their feathery fire,Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire;And not one will know of the war, not oneWill care at last when it is done.Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree,If mankind perished utterly;And Spring herself, when she woke at dawnWould scarcely know that [...]

    6. My aunt gave me this book when I was a teenager. Every poem i wrote for years after that sounded like Sara Teasdale. She perfect for romantic teenage girls.

    7. I found this author accidentially. I did a search on "Female Poets" and I just randomly picked the letter "T" and went down the list. I found her book and opened it. I fell in love instantly. I went to a local used bookstore called "Rust Belt Books" and asked if they had this book, they did not. Within a couple of days someone had brought in a copy. It was ment to be! I continue to reread the poems. Favorite section is "Flame and Shadows".

    8. I stumbled upon Sara Teasdale's poetry around 7th grade when I was in my own poetic phase. Her work really moved me, as in adolescence we try to find such things, and inspired me more to continue writing. While I've abandoned by aspiring writer status, I still find her poetry to be simple and beautiful. Teasdale committed suicide, so many of her poems are about her struggle with life and death and the numerous moments in life that both excited and depressed her.

    9. These poems are the soundtrack of my life. I have loved them since I first received this book as a gift at 15. Teasdale's poetry is the kind to read aloud. You will find pieces of your own life and heartbreak in them.

    10. I read the first half of this book while recovering from a bad flu, in my fevered mind every rhymed verse was the same song, repeating from poem to poem. I began to really enjoy her work when I broke this mental patterning, and now I wish I’d held on to the book longer to reread the last two sections.Notes to Self:First Poet to with The Pulitzer (but right before they changed the name to Pulitzer, so often overlooked)For future reference:“The spring herself, when she woke at dawn,Would scarc [...]

    11. Familiar only with her short lyrics, I did not know that Sara Teasdale attempted dramatic monologues in her early book Helen of Troy and Other Poems (1911). They are very readable though they are insufficiently dramatic. Marya Zaturenska, who wrote the insightful introduction, rightly describes Teasdale's work as poignant, but not tragic. Still, one comes across luminous passages like this one spoken by ill-fated Helen:I will not give the grave my hands to hold,My shining hair to light oblivion. [...]

    12. Collection of Sara Teasdale's poetry from 1907 to 1933, including poems on war, childhood, nature, and love. Especially love. But not the love poems you would necessarily expect. There is a lot about the love between a man and a woman, of course, but there's also the love of a woman for her city. And New York plays a leading role in so many of Teasdale's poems, the skyline being compared to the waves of the ocean, the landmarks of the city described in a way that you can still feel, smell, and h [...]

    13. I fell in love with Teasdale's poetry as a teenager and wrote my bachelor's thesis on her. Some of these poems I know by heart; I've read them over and over again. She uses images, mostly of things in nature, to express emotions, and hers are either very happy or deep down in the dumps. My theory is that she may have been bipolar. The meaning of her poetry hits you as soon as you read it. I wish she'd lived longer and written more! Anyone who likes Teasdale may also enjoy the poetry of Christina [...]

    14. I was glad to have found the smaller bound volumes of Teasdale's poems, because several were excluded from this collection, and one was one of my favorites ("Spring" from Rivers to the Sea). There aren't any explanations for the exclusions other than that they were based on conversations she had with friends.I tend to like her shorter, rhyming, sentimental poems than her longer, affected sonnets and tributes to mythological figures.

    15. After hearing the poem; " There will come soft rains" ,There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground And swallows circling with their shimmering sound: And frogs in the pools singing at night,And wild plum-trees in tremulous white, This is just part of the poem, but it is beautiful. so I bought the her poetry book, and they are all beautiful, well worth buying and reading,,

    16. I first came across Sara Teasdale in an anthology of poetry by women. I fell in love with her work immediately. The edition of her Collected Poems that I own has a lovely introduction/biographical sketch of her that really helped me put her poetry in the context of her life, making it all the more rich and meaningful. On the surface, her poems don't seem like much, but looking beyond that first impression one finds that her poems are as complex and unique as the poet herself.

    17. I go back and forth reading this book. I have a limited edition, maroon hardbound copy of this collection and I treasure it - although I have not read all of the collection to its entirety. I've been a Sara Teasdale fan ever since I read her poem, "Barter". For an amazingly powerful poet, I'm surprised she is not more well known.

    18. I discovered and fell in love with Sara Teasdale's poetry when I was in college. She had a true gift. She was very unhappy during her short life, and that very unhappiness imbued her poetry with a depth and pathos that has always reached out to me. I especially love the poetry she wrote about the ocean.

    19. There is no magic any more,We meet as other people do,You work no miracle for meNor I for you.You were the wind and I the sea -There is no splendor any more,I have grown listless as the poolBeside the shore.But though the pool is safe from stormAnd from the tide has found surcease,It grows more bitter than the sea,For all its peace.

    20. I’m working on the Collected Poems these days. I became a fan of Teasdale's many years ago after reading “The Look” in high school, and I’ve been rather enamored ever since. This collection is a little rough in spots–sometimes she can be a little on the trite, melodramatic side–but sometimes she’s perfectly brilliant. Careful, though: her poetry will make you want to fall in love.

    21. I'm not close to half the book and yet I know it's a five star book and the best I read this yeard a dear company for years to come.Done and it's not a book you wanna be done withmost of the poems are personal and evolve around one theme yet they're worth endless readings and many readers can find themselves in them

    22. Something about Teasdale's poetry really speaks to my heart. I've read the collected works all at least once, and have gone back to many of the poems repeatedly. Many of her poems are quite lyrical, and I've even set some of them to music. (I don't do much of that.)

    23. Teasdale's poems are bit sentimental for my tastes, but considering the time period they're astonishingly modern. Unfortunately, my favorite poem of hers, "Central Park", isn't in this book for some reason.

    24. Now while my lips are livingTheir words must stay unsaid,And will my soul rememberTo speak when I am dead?Yet if my soul rememberedYou would not heed it, dear,For now you must not listen,And then you could not hear.

    25. I read this long ago and far away and loved it. The goal now is to find a good copy of her poetry to own for myself. Four and a half stars.
