    • Number three My heart broke for her sadness and pain in this book so much I wanted to reach through the ink and the fibers, through time, to stroke her fingers or her cheek, to bring her sunshine and bade her to see the light we always see shining through her eyes and faith even in the mentions of pain So, so beautiful the whole way.


    • My first encounter with sara teasdale, a very underrated poet In my opinion, was with the poem moonlight The waves break fold on jewelled fold,But beauty itself is fugitive,It will not hurt me when I am old and I fell in love it took me 2 years to read anything by her though, and i do regret wasting that time.if i were to look at poetry in the broad sense, in the sort of critical assement I dont think i would say miss teasdalebrought something utterly unique and groundbreaking but i think she br [...]


    • I like free verse poetry This collection made me reconsider form I enjoyed the pace of these poems I read most of them aloud after my first read I even enjoyed the rhyming The musicality of the form was pleasing, and it showed a true control of language I will not shy away from form again But appreciation makes a critic While I enjoyed most of Teasdale s format choices, her lines could be too long at times It threw off the rhythm I also felt she relied on slant rhyme too much The content of thes [...]


    • Poetry Usually my blind spot but this selection of poems was very good Short poems of infinite clarity, finely distilling emotions and experiences Overall a touch on the depressing side but beautiful However I would advise avoiding this edition Poorly laid out with little to no differentiation between the end of one poem and the title of the next and then none to its first line Also some lines were even in the previous section.


    • Teasdale s works need to be taught in school She is one of our best poets, and Flame and Shadow showcases that A good majority of her poems have a sad, dark slant to them, but each work is masterful Blue Squills is one favorite, and I can see those little blue flowers as I read the piece.I highly recommend this collection Discovered on Kindle.


    • Just the poetry, unadorned with intro or notes The first few poems are really mannered, but Teasdale hit her stride eventually Berneis does not Emote, which is nice.


    • I fell in love with Sara Teasdale when I first read Winter Stars From windows in my father s house, Dreaming my dreams on winter nights, I watched Orion as a girl Above another city s lights.I possess a 1920 Macmillan edition of this book I am very particular about old editions and the moment I laid my eyes on the cover, I was overjoyed and hyper excited She expresses emotions in such a delicate and lyrical manner Gray Eyes also has me completely mesmerized All her poems have that effect.It was [...]


    • I would never have touched this book had it not been for Ray Bradbury He included the poem, There Will Come Soft Rains, which intrigued me It ultimately led me to finding this work by Sara Teasdale.Generally, I liked her poems They were written in the early part of the 20th century, very near World War I It was really cool to see the influence of the times touch the various poems within this work.If her work is reflective of her personality, Sara was so very lonely at times, sick at other times, [...]


    • I can see why Sara Teasdale was so popular in her time Her poems run the gamut from light and romance y to dark and full of death It s chilling when you realize how many of her poems mention death, considering she committed suicide in 1933.


    • Sara Teasdale s poetry is, in general, lovely Her style doesn t seem to vary much from poem to poem, or, indeed, from collection to collection That sort of spoils it The use of imagery is lovely, though, and each of her poems read alone is beautiful.


    • I hate to say it, but her poems start to run together after a while Still the imagery is beautiful and the prose is heartfelt.



    • This is one of the later volumes of Sara Teasdale s beautiful lyric poetry Sadly, her tormented soul is apparent in several of the works.




    • Excerpt fromWhite FogHere in a world without a sky,Without the ground, without the sea,The one unchanging thing is I,Myself remains to comfort me.
