My Heart is Heavy
By Sara Teasdale
From “Memories”

MY heart is heavy with many a song,
  Like ripe fruit bearing down the tree;
And I can never give you one—
  My songs do not belong to me.
Yet in the evening, in the dusk        5
  When moths go to and fro,
In the gray hour if the fruit has fallen,
  Take it—no one will know.
