Treasure Island

Sara Teasdale

(8 August 1884 – 29 January 1933 / Missouri)

"I Have Loved Hours at Sea"


I have loved hours at sea, gray cities,
The fragile secret of a flower,
Music, the making of a poem
That gave me heaven for an hour;

First stars above a snowy hill,
Voices of people kindly and wise,
And the great look of love, long hidden,
Found at last in meeting eyes.

I have loved much and been loved deeply --
Oh when my spirit's fire burns low,
Leave me the darkness and the stillness,
I shall be tired and glad to go.

The world is full of meat and drink,
With little children saying grace
In every Christian kind of place.... Read complete »
