I Thought of You

I Thought of You

I thought of you and how you love this beauty,
And walking up the long beach all alone
I heard the waves breaking in measured thunder
As you and I once heard their monotone.

Around me were the echoing dunes, beyond me
The cold and sparkling silver of the sea,
We two will pass through death and ages lengthen
Before you hear that sound again with me.

--Sara Teasdale

Sam, did you have to make me teary-eyed this afternoon? ;) Seriously, this photo goes with the poem so well, and I've never read this work of Teasdale and it resonates in my heart very deeply. It's ironic, too, because my e-mail to you yesterday had the same title as this poem! hehe
