Sara Teasdale

Here you will find the Poem To E. of poet Sara Teasdale

To E.

I have remembered beauty in the night, 
Against black silences I waked to see 
A shower of sunlight over Italy 
And green Ravello dreaming on her height; 
I have remembered music in the dark, 
The clean swift brightness of a fugue of Bach's, 
And running water singing on the rocks 
When once in English woods I heard a lark.

But all remembered beauty is no more 
Than a vague prelude to the thought of you-- 
You are the rarest soul I ever knew, 
Lover of beauty, knightliest and best, 
My thoughts seek you as waves that seek the shore, 
And when I think of you I am at rest.
