Book Excerpt: 
. . .Love me, love me, love me!"

  When he harkens what you say,
   Bid him, lest he miss me,
  Leave his work or leave his play,
   And kiss me, kiss me, kiss me!


  Pierrot stands in the garden
   Beneath a waning moon,
  And on his lute he fashions
   A fragile silver tune.

  Pierrot plays in the garden,
   He thinks he plays for me,
  But I am quite forgotten
   Under the cherry tree.

  Pierrot plays in the garden,
   And all the roses know
  That Pierrot loves his music,—
   But I love Pierrot.

Simplistic language and clever subtleties. Easy to read aloud. There's an interesting existential interlude, but my favorite sections included the romantic love poems, 1st and 3rd. Highly recommended to those who love spring, stars, lightly melancholic lyrics, and gentle surprises.

What an absolutely gorgeous yet simple collection of poetry and love! I bookmarked like every page. Definitely need to own this. I'm so in love with Sara Teasdale right now. The way she weaves such intense emotions into beautiful simplicity is memorizing!

Sara Teasdale's poetry is full of passion and emotion, and it speaks to the reader even today, so long after it was first published. It is sad that the very same passion undoubtedly led to her suicide in early 1933. She wrote mainly of love, nature, and death, but of course "Love Songs" which was...more

Sara Teasdale wrote Love Songs in 1917 and received 3 awards for it: the Columbia University Poetry Society prize, the 1918 Pulitzer Prize for poetry and the annual prize of the Poetry Society of America. It's a beautiful collection of poetry that I'm so thankful to have stumbled upon.

Fluent, straightforward, constant, reflective. Sara Teasdale's poems croon and radiate passion.

“Spring Rain” and “The Flight” are my favorite poems in this book.
