SARA TEASDALE (MRS. E.B. FILSINGER)
American author and poet
(1884 - 1933)

I found more joy in sorrow than you could find in joy.
      - [Joy]

I make the most of all that comes and the least of all that goes.
      - [Acceptance]

There in the windy flood of morning
  Longing lifted its weight from me,
    Lost as a sob in the midst of cheering,
      Swept as a sea-bird out to sea.
      - Leaves [Morning]

Of my own spirit let me be
  In soul though feeble mastery.
      - Mastery [Spirit]

I shall not let a sorrow die
  Until I find the heart of it,
    Nor let a wordless joy go by
      Until it talks to me a bit;
        And the ache my body knows
          Shall teach me more than to another,
            I shall look deep at mire and rose
              Until each one becomes my brother.
      - Servitors [Misfortune]

Joy was a flame in me
  Too steady to destroy.
    Lithe as a bending reed,
      Loving the storm that sways her--
        I found more joy in sorrow
          Than you could find in joy.
      - The Answer [Sorrow]

My soul is a dark ploughed field
  In the cold rain;
    My soul is a broken field
      Ploughed by pain.
      - The Broken Field [Soul]

Before you kissed me only winds of heaven
  Had kissed me, and the tenderness of rain--
    Now you have come, how can I care for kisses
      Like theirs again?
      - The Kiss [Love]

But what do I care, for love will be over so soon,
  Let my heart have its say and my mind stand idly by,
    For my mind is proud and strong enough to be silent,
      It is my heart that makes my songs, not I.
      - What Do I Care? [Love]
