    I have rarely enjoyed any poetry as much as this one. I'm saving it to read again and again (and so grateful
    this poet is still living- lucky thing, to discover a wonderful writer still breathing air!) . This is real poetry.
    So many unforgettable lines in here. Amazing stuff. (Report) Reply

poet Sara Teasdale

Only in sleep I see their faces,
Children I played with when I was a child,
Louise comes back with her brown hair braided,
Annie with ringlets warm and wild.
