Theme:  Wine Musings

Notes:
A native of St. Louis, Missouri, when reading Sara Teasdale one always feels that he is being given a peek into a very personal world, a sonar-like read into the depths of a very personal journey.  She is considered one of the best American poets of the 20th Century.  She is honored in her hometown by being included in St. Louis' "Walk of Fame".
- S. H. Bass

The Inn Of Earth
Sara Teasdale (1885-1933), American poet

I came to the crowded Inn of Earth,
And called for a cup of wine,
But the Host went by with averted eye
From a thirst as keen as mine.

Then I sat down with weariness
And asked a bit of bread,
But the Host went by with averted eye
And never a word he said.

While always from the outer night
The waiting souls came in
With stifled cries of sharp surprise
At all the light and din.

“Then give me a bed to sleep,” I said,
“For midnight comes apace”
But the Host went by with averted eye
And I never saw his face.

“Since there is neither food nor rest,
I go where I fared before”
But the Host went by with averted eye
And barred the outer door.


from Rivers to the Sea (1915)
