More fine poetry from Teasdale. Another poem of hers is here. (internal link)

In my youth, time seemed to begin anew when meeting someone new.

The Years

by Sara Teasdale (1884 – 1933)

The Years

To-night I close my eyes and see
A strange procession passing me-
The years before I saw your face
Go by me with a wistful grace;
They pass, the sensitive, shy years,
As one who strives to dance, half blind with tears.

The years went by and never knew
That each one brought me nearer you;
Their path was narrow and apart
And yet it led me to your heart-
Oh, sensitive, shy years, oh, lonely years,
That strove to sing with voices drowned in tears.
