Sara Teasdale, comp. (1884–1933).
The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women. 1917.


Rosamund Marriott Watson

EVEN for you I shall not weep

When I at last, at last am dead,

Nor turn and sorrow in my sleep

Though you should linger overhead.

Even of you I shall not dream

Beneath the waving graveyard grass;

One with the soul of wind and stream

I shall not heed you if you pass.

Even for you I would not wake,

Too bitter were the tears I knew,

Too dark the road I needs must take—

The road that winds away from you.
