Poem of the Day – Day 2

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 snow

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.

– Sara Teasdale
