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.

This collection of poems made me fall in love with poetry all over again !
So lovely that i felt like i was dancing on my toes.
Some of the poems talked about heartbreak and they were like talking to each break my heart had!
Some of the poems talked about wisdom in love yet how insane a lover can be!

3.5 stars*

This was surprisingly bittersweet. Sara Teasdale's writing is straightforward in a way that reminds me of insta poets of today's time but it still has the beauty and feel of a classic. The poet's take on love is appealing in its innocence though it sometimes comes across as a bit sappy. Ov

4.5 stars. As always with poetry there were a few I didn't like or didn't 'get', but this book had a surprisingly high proportion of poems that I really liked.

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.
