"I Am Not Yours"

I am not yours, not lost in you,
Not lost, although I long to be
Lost as a candle lit at noon,
Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still
A spirit beautiful and bright,
Yet I am I, who long to be
Lost as a light is lost in light.

Oh plunge me deep in love -- put out
My senses, leave me deaf and blind,
Swept by the tempest of your love,
A taper in a rushing wind.

-Sarah Teasdale -



Oh let the sun beat down upon my face
stars to fill my dream
I am a traveler of both time and space
to be where I have been
To sit with elders of the gentle race
this world has seldom seen
Talk of days for which they sit and wait
all will be revealed
