Day 502: Falling Star

There's a quiet beauty and a sparkling simplicity to Sara Teasdale's verse, perfect for winter reading.

Compensation - Sara Teasdale

I should be glad of loneliness
And hours that go on broken wings,
A thirsty body, a tired heart
And the unchanging ache of things,

If I could make a single song
As lovely and as full of light,
As hushed and brief as a falling star
On a winter night.
