2 “I found more joy in sorrow than you could find in joy.” This was one of many quotes said by Teasdale that reflected her personality (“Sara Teasdale Quotes”, Brainy Quotes). Sara Trevor Teasdale was born on August 8th, 1884 in St. Louis, Missouri (“Sara Teasdale”, Music). Her parents were Mary Elizabeth Willard and John Warren Teasdale (“Sara Teasdale Biography”, Famous Poets and Poems). She was a frail little girl, the youngest of four children. She had two older brothers, George and John, and one older sister, Mary (. Teasdale was sheltered most of her life due to the fact that she was often sick. Being she was sick so often, she was around adults most of her life. Later on she met her future husband, Ernst Filsinger; they married in In 1916 Teasdale and her husband moved to New York City to write her poetry. In the beginning, they were happy and in love but the marriage did not last. They decided to split in From then on she completely devoted her life to poetry. After four years, she caught pneumonia and slowly recovered. After the suicide of a friend and her illness, Teasdale became severely depressed and began to think she had nothing to live for.

3 Teasdale attended many schools and won many awards for her literature achievements. After being homeschooled until the age of nine, Teasdale went to Miss Ellen Dean Lockwood’s school for boys and girls for one year; she would later switch to Mary Institute. After those schools she went to Hosmer Hall (“Sara Teasdale Biography”, Famous Poets and Poems). It was there Teasdale began to put her ideas and dreams into poems. Since she was often around adults or sick, she had a big imagination and she used those elements in her writing. She wrote her first poem when she was fifteen but did not publish her works till she was 23. Teasdale had two individuals who influenced her, they were the actress Eleanora Duse and the British poet Christina Rossetti (“Sara Teasdale”, Enotes). Over the years Teasdale won many awards for her literature works. She won the Pulitzer Prize for Love Songs in She also was awarded the Columbia University Poetry Society Prize in Biography(cont) Home List of Works Inspired Poems Original Poems Sample Poems Bibliography

4 Teasdale had a natural ability to write poems that expressed who she was. She chose to write about beauty and love because she had experienced it. In order to express those emotions she used similes, rhyming, repetitions, and opposites (“Analysis: Barter”, Tripod). Her work was very popular in her time because every woman dreamed of what it would be like to fall in love. She showed an undying and accurate understanding of human emotion and that is why her work was and still is so popular. She wrote of being in love and having your heart broken. Teasdale impacted the literature world with her words of warmth and passion within her poems. Teasdale’s poems are still well known because all contain one thing, emotion. Sara Teasdale impacted modern poetry with her deep and passionate words within her literature and for that she is remembered.

6 Compensation I should be glad of loneliness And hours that go on broken wings, A thirsty body, a tired heart And the unchanging ache of things, If I could make a single song As lovely and as full of light, As hushed and brief as a falling star On a winter night. This poem is about wanting things to change and knowing they won’t. I chose this poem because I related to it as soon as I read the line, “A thirsty body, a tired heart/ And the unchanging ache of things”. The world is always moving at a fast pace and when your life feels unmovable, like it’s going nowhere. This poem means something to me because there have been many times in my life where I have felt stationary and boring. This is a poem everyone should read because it is somehow relatable to everyone’s lives in this high-speed world we live in. Home Biography List of Works Inspired Poems Original Poems Bibliography

7 After Love There is no magic any more, We meet as other people do, You work no miracle for me Nor I for you. You were the wind and I the sea -- There is no splendor any more, I have grown listless as the pool Beside the shore. But though the pool is safe from storm And from the tide has found surcease, It grows more bitter than the sea, For all its peace. This poem is about losing something, someone to be exact. I chose this poem because I feel people including myself can relate to it. “You work no miracle for me/ Nor I for you”, this quote stuck out to me because it describes how one feels after something good has ended. Everyone knows what it feels like to lose someone so important to you. By lose I mean break up or leave not lose by death or fatality. This poem has meaning for me because I know what it feels like when things aren’t the same between two people anymore. I know how much it can hurt when someone completely drops out of your life or you become non- existent. The point is, this poem is relatable in a sense that everyone loses something important and it takes real strength to rise up and live your life again.

8 There will come soft rains and the smell of the ground, And swallows circling with their shimmering sound; And frogs in the pools singing at night, And wild plum trees in tremulous white; Robins will wear their feathery fire, Whistling their whims on a low fence-wire; And not one will know of the war, not one Will care at last when it is done. Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree, If mankind perished utterly; And Spring herself, when she woke at dawn Would scarcely know that we were gone. There Will Come Soft Rain Home Biography List of Works Inspired Poems Original Poems Bibliography

9 “There will come soft rains,” Sara Teasdale displays imagery in a way that forces you to absorb the intricate words. This poem is about nature’s awareness of humanity. Teasdale paints a picture with her descriptive words of nature’s beauty and the disappearance of humanity. "Not one would mind, neither bird nor tree/ If mankind perished utterly; / And spring herself, when she woke at dawn/ Would scarcely know that we were gone.” This quote represents the idea of humans disappearing and nature moving on; of nature forgetting and pushing forward into the future. “And frogs in the pools singing at night, / And wild plum trees in tremulous white”. This quote expresses the beauty Teasdale found in nature to an extent where one can picture the images in their head. This also provides a description of how simple the beauty of nature is. Sara Teasdale uses imagery in this poem when she vividly describes the characteristics of nature. Using imagery to describe and represent the symbols in this poem makes it much more vivid and real. The effect of imagery on this poem is prominent and very important because words would just be words not feelings and emotions. Sara Teasdale causes one to ponder nature without humanity, to display how simple the world would be without humans, and to remind all of how beautiful and wonderful nature is.

10 Life had a loveliness to sell All beautiful and splendid things Blue waves whitened on a cliff Soaring fire that sways and swings And children’s faces looking up Holding wonder like a cup Life has a loveliness to sell Music like the curve of gold Scent of pine trees in the rain Eyes that love you, arms that hold And for your spirits still delight Holy thoughts that star the night Spend all you have for loveliness Buy it and never count the cost For one while singing hour of peace Count many a year of strife well lost And for a breath of ecstasy Give all you have been, or could be Barter Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Original Poems Bibliography

11 There is wondrous beauty Yet a being full of sadness and regret Though there is beauty there is rage To look through innocent eyes To see such beauty in a worldly state Life offers countless excitements Music that makes you press repeat 100 times To breathe the air after a rain shower To have someone to love, someone to care To have hope for a future And dreams of better days To be blinded from the truth To forget those who struggle To ignore the ignored To worship the worshiped Do not forget who they are Do not forget who you are Remember: Inspired by Barter Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Original Poems Bibliography

12 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, 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 Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Original Poems Bibliography

13 I wish I was something to you But to be something is harder than nothing I am but another person to strangers I am one face in a sea of a thousand It is in you I find my real purpose You shine so brightly it illuminates my soul Still I hide, too scared to be me But who am I? I’m lost in myself It is time to break free of my shame Forget regret Now I am free of what I used to be Finally I am someone Purpose: Inspired by I Am Not Yours Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Original Poems Bibliography

14 Nothing seems real anymore Black and white have turned to grey My nerves have gone astray My heart keeps beating My soul keeps on living But my life is in a stationary state I want to escape the darkness into light Into your arms I will take flight Stationary Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Inspired Poems Bibliography

15 You lived your life to the fullest Loved with all your might Cared with all your heart And smiled like the sun I will always remember Fishing off the dock on a summer evening Granny’s ice cream on a scorching hot day Going to the Underwood Park and climbing in the huge bird house All of our laughs All of our tears All of our memories I remember them I never would have imagined How much it would hurt to see you go I know your suffering is over And for that I am thankful But everything is so hard without you here I hope you’re as proud of me as I am of you I miss you and love you Grandma Memories Home Biography List of Works Sample Poems Inspired Poems Bibliography
