“Stephen kissed me in the spring,
Robin in the fall,
But Colin only looked at me
And never kissed at all.

But the kiss in Colin’s eyes
Haunts me night and day.”
Sara Teasdale, The Collected Poems

“It is strange how often a heart must be broken

Sara Teasdale, The Collected Poems

“You will recognize your own path
when you come upon it
because you will suddenly have all the energy
and imagination you will ever need.”
Sara Teasdale
