Wood Song
By Sara Teasdale
From “Songs out of Stress”

I HEARD a wood-thrush in the dusk
  Twirl three notes and make a star—
My heart that walked with bitterness
  Came back from very far.
Three shining notes were all he had,        5
  And yet they made a starry call—
I caught life back against my breast
  And kissed it, scars and all.
