POEMS: “Alchemy” by Sara Teasdale

Alchemy

 

 

I lift my heart as spring lifts up

A yellow daisy to the rain;

My heart will be a lovely cup

Altho’ it holds but pain.

 

For I shall learn from flower and leaf

That color every drop they hold,

To change the lifeless wine of grief

To living gold.

Sara Teasdale
