Sara Teasdale (1884-1933)|
I AM wild, I will sing to the trees,
I will sing to the stars in the sky,
I love, I am loved, he is mine,
Now at last I can die!
I am sandaled with wind and with flame,
I have heart-fire and singing to give,
I can tread on the grass or the stars,
Now at last I can live!
Joy appeared in Reedy's Mirror as well as the Anthology of
Magazine Verse for 1915. It can also be found in:
