LYRICS

One by one, like leaves from a tree
All my faiths have forsaken me; 
But the stars above my head
Burn in white and delicate red, 
And beneath my feet the earth 

Brings the sturdy grass to birth.
I who was content to be
But a silken-singing tree,
But a rustle of delight
In the wistful heart of night–
I have lost the leaves that knew 

Touch of rain and weight of dew. 

Blinded by a leafy crown
I looked neither up nor down–
But the little leaves that die
Have left me room to see the sky; 
Now for the first time I know 

Stars above and earth below. 

 
Sara Teasdale  1884-1933
