A Year of Poetry – Day 326

Here in the teeth of this triumphant wind
That shakes the naked shadows on the ground,
Making a key-board of the earth to strike
From clattering tree and hedge a separate sound,

Bear witness for me that I loved my life,
All things that hurt me and all things that healed,
And that I swore it this day in March,
Here at the edge of this new-broken field.

You only knew me, tell them I was glad
For every hour since my hour of birth,
And that I ceased to fear, as once I feared,
The last complete reunion with the earth.

— Sara Teasdale, On A March Day

    We have certainly had a lot of “triumphant wind” in the past week here in western Michigan!

    What happens when you reach Day 365? Are you going to continue posting poetry? I have never been a big fan of poetry, however, I have discovered new poems I enjoy as well as some old favorites.
    Just wanted to say thank you for doing this. I have enjoyed it.

    • I’m glad you’re enjoying these. I’ll stop after day 365. There are so many good sources for poetry on-line, and I hope you’ll find one that gives you what you enjoy.
