I Am Not Yours: Sara Teasdale

Posted on: 7 May 2007

I am not yours, not lost in you,

Not lost, although I long to be

Lost as a candle lit at noon,

Lost as a snowflake in the sea.

You love me, and I find you still

A spirit beautiful and bright,

Yet I am I, who long to be


Lost as a light is lost in light


Oh plunge me deep in love — put out

My senses, leave me deaf and blind,

Swept by the tempest of your love,

A taper in a rushing wind.

WOW! I don’t have the words to express how much I’d like to be ‘lost’ in him, but this kind of covers it ;0)
Wonderful words Ann, thank you for sharing

Once again you found just the right pics to meld with the words!!

Lost, yes, it’s true.
