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.

Sarah Teasdale was a woman who found unimaginable beauty in love, in sorrow, in nature, and in the city, while conversely understood how you could be trapped by all four at the same time. Her poetry drips with passionate imagery- cries in the night at being bound and lost are intermingled with br...more

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.

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

'You took my empty dreams
    And filled them every one
   With tenderness and nobleness,
    April and the sun.'

How can I possibly review this great collection of poetry?
It is full of innocence and warmth and malancholy and hope and dreams and April and May and November and love.

I’ve long considered myself to be a hopeless romantic. That said, I didn’t love these poems. It’s the first book of poetry I’ve read (since Shel Silverstein’s books lol), but her words just fell kind of flat, and her ‘love songs’ felt so so shallow. Like a teen girl fantasizing about faceless, na...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.

Not really fond of any of these poems, they're none I wish to even quote. As a result I'm not a particular fan of this part of Sara Teasdale's life - there's a quality about this work that seems very superficial - as if she was trying to convince herself of love (with what sounds like numerous in...more

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

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

I've never knew who Sara Teasdale was until I found this book and started to read it.
Teasdale was an american poet and born in 1884.
This book was published in 1918, and this is a collection of her poems. This book won 3 awards.
Teasdale commited suicide on 1933.

One of my favorite poem:
