The Look

by Sara Teasdale

Strephon kissed me in the spring,

Robin in the fall,

But Colin only looked at me

And never kissed at all.

Strephon’s kiss was lost in jest,

Robin’s lost in play,

But the kiss in Colin’s eyes

Haunts me night and day.

After Love

by Sara Teasdale

There is no magic any more,

 We meet as other people do,

You work no miracle for me

 Nor I for you.

You were the wind and I the sea—

 There is no splendor any more,

I have grown listless as the pool

 Beside the shore.

But though the pool is safe from storm

 And from the tide has found surcease,

It grows more bitter than the sea,

 For all its peace.
