Poem of the day
Dusk In War Time
by Sara Teasdale
A half-hour more and you will lean
To gather me close in the old sweet way-
But oh, to the woman over the sea
Who will come at the close of day?
A half-hour more and I will hear
The key in the latch and the strong, quick tread-
But oh, the woman over the sea
