Sara Teasdale: A Favorite Wedding Author

Written by on October 2, 2011 in Readings & Vows - No comments

Sara Teasdale, the contemporary poet, has become a favorite author to express lovely sentiments in wedding ceremony scripts:

To-night I close my eyes and see
A strange procession passing me —
The years before I saw your face
Go by me with a wistful grace;
They pass, the sensitive shy years,

As one who strives to dance, half blind with tears.
The years went by and never knew
That each one brought me nearer you;
Their path was narrow and apart
And yet it led me to your heart —
Oh sensitive shy years, oh lonely years,
That strove to sing with voices drowned in tears.

— Sara Teasdale
