by Sara Teasdale (1884 - 1933)

February twilight
Language: English 
Available translation(s): FRE GER
I stood beside a hill
Smooth with new-laid snow,
A single star looked out
From the cold evening glow.
There was no other creature 
That saw what I could see
I stood and watched the evening star
As long as it watched me.
