Three Sara Teasdale Songs for Soprano and Piano, Opus 15, initially started as two songs, but felt incomplete. An early 20th century American lyric poet and first winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1917, Teasdale often wrote poetry of intense and powerful sadness. The second song of this set, I Shall Not Care, was rumored to be her suicide note (she took her own life in 1933), though the poem was actually published several years earlier. Teasdale’s poetry, however, can also depict hope and a desire for love. So, I added a third song, White Fog – which displays an awe of nature, as well as self-confidence – to make the set more fully representative of Teasdale’s character and depth as a poet.
Heaven-invading hills are drowned
In wide moving waves of mist,
Phlox before my door are wound
In dripping wreaths of amethyst.
Ten feet away the solid earth
Changes into melting cloud,
There is a hush of pain and mirth,
No bird has heart to speak aloud.
Here in a world without a sky,
Without the ground, without the sea,
The one unchanging thing is I,
Myself remains to comfort me.
