Poetry Friday--Sara Teasdale

Sara Teasdale (1884-1933) was a typical poet of the time. She wrote lyrical verse, that is, rhyming poetry, which was an expression of her feelings.

The following poem, "To-night" is found in the Collected Poems of Sara Teasdale [811.54 TEA]. It originally appeared in her 1917 book, Love Songs, a copy of which may be downloaded here.

The moon is a curving flower of gold,
    The sky is still and blue;
The moon was made for the sky to hold,
    And I for you.

The moon is a flower without a stem,
    The sky is luminous;
Eternity was made for them,
    To-night for us.
The Poetry Friday Round-Up is taking place at Scrub-a-Dub-Tub.
