Sonnets to Duse and other poems
The Heart's House

by Sara Teasdale

My heart is but a little house
With room for only three or four,
And it was filled before you knocked
Upon the door.

I longed to bid you come within,
I knew that I should love you well,
But if you came the rest must go
Elsewhere to dwell.

For you would never be content
With just a corner in my room,
Yea, if you came the rest must go
Into the gloom.

And so, farewell, O friend, my friend!
Nay, I could weep a little too,
But I shall only smile and say
Farewell to you.
