February Twilight

Sara Teasdale By more Sara Teasdale

I stood beside a hill
Smooth with new-laid snow,
A single star looked out
From the cold evening glow.

There was no other creature
That saw what I could see—
I stood and watched the evening star
As long as it watched me.

I have always had trouble seeing the good in things but this poem makes me smile and think thats so true.

It gives me a certain joy to be in a place in the forest or a shore or anywhere in nature and imagine that I'm the only person who has ever been in that exact spot. As a young boy, I would wander off into the woods near my house and find a quiet, clear spot and just sit, watch, and think. It was fun. I did it often.
