    Lovely poem. I think perhaps the 2nd line of the second verse, should have read “Let me find death than stay” instead of “Let me find death and stay.” (Report) Reply

    Those who thank the writer of this poem should note that she died in 1933. (Report) Reply

    Yes. Brilliant, poignant, strong and full of simple feeling. I really like this.
    Thankyou Sarah. (Report) Reply

    It might be about dementia and the ability to forget the order of the pass, if we loose the single happy moments of our childhood and innocent’s death seems preferable then a life without the innocent convictions. Beautiful work (Report) Reply

    i wonder what has driven this great poet to not forget her chikdhood.
    maybe life after childhood is not so pleasing. just a thought (Report) Reply

    I would agree with Mr. Craddock's interpretation If Teasdale had written AS A CHILD, instead of FROM A CHILD''...I guess I'm applying the critical rigour demanded by Mr. Straw...therefore, to me, Teasdale's DEEP SOLACE OF SONG is the memory of pure, innoncent love. (Report) Reply

    Is that trite like in beef trite? I think beef trite is delicious, and the poem is good too. I guess if you don't think this should be poem of the day you can start your own website.

    I agree with Kevin Straw- this poem makes no sense- trite as ever- Why anyone would pick this poem to be poem of the day is beyond me. (Report) Reply

    A truly delightful nugget of a poem! Never mind the nay-sayers & long-winded comments by the la-de-da critic who mostly uses outdated language to express himself! (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Robert William Service

Just Home and Love! the words are small
Four little letters unto each;
And yet you will not find in all
The wide and gracious range of speech
Two more so tenderly complete:
