Sara Teasdale, comp. (1884–1933).
The Answering Voice: One Hundred Love Lyrics by Women.  1917.
 
To One Unknown
By Helen Dudley
 
I HAVE seen the proudest stars
That wander on through space,
Even the sun and moon,
But not your face.
 
I have heard the violin,        5
The winds and waves rejoice
In endless minstrelsy;
Yet not your voice.
 
I have touched the trillium,
Pale flower of the land,        10
Coral, anemone,
And not your hand.
 
I have kissed the shining feet
Of Twilight lover-wise,
Opened the gates of Dawn—        15
Oh, not your eyes!
 
I have dreamed unwonted things,
Visions that witches brew,
Spoken with images,
Never with you.        20
