Today’s Poem ~ Those Who Love

Those Who Love

Sara Teasdale

Those who love the most

Do not talk of their love;

Francesca, Guinevere, Dierdre, Iseult, Heloise

In the fragrant gardens of heaven

Are silent, or speak, if at all,

Of fragile, inconsequent things.

And a woman I used to know

Who loved one man from her youth,

Against the strength of the fates

Fighting in lonely pride,

Never spoke of this thing,

But hearing his name by chance,

A light would pass over her face.
