POEM OF THE DAY: Let It Be Forgotten

by Sara Teasdale (1884 – 1933).

 

Let It Be Forgotten

 

Let it be forgotten, as a flower is forgotten,

Forgotten as a fire that once was singing gold,

Let it be forgotten for ever and ever,

Time is a kind friend, he will make us old.

 

If anyone asks, say it was forgotten                                     

Long and long ago,

As a flower, as a fire, as a hushed footfall

In a long forgotten snow.
