Sunday Poem

Night Song at Amalfi by Sara Teasdale

 

I ASKED the heaven of stars
What I should give my love—
It answered me with silence,
Silence above.

I asked the darkened sea 5
Down where the fishes go—
It answered me with silence,
Silence below.

Oh, I could give him weeping,
Or I could give him song— 10
But how can I give silence
My whole life long?
