Spirit’s House
By Sara Teasdale
 
From “Songs out of Stress”

FROM naked stones of agony
I will build a house for me;
As a mason all alone
I will raise it, stone by stone,
And every stone where I have bled        5
Will show a sign of dusky red.
I have not gone the way in vain,
For I have the good of all my pain;
My spirit’s quiet house will be
Built of naked stones I trod        10
On roads where I lost sight of God.
