Dew

by Sara Teasdale


Original Language English

As dew leaves the cobweb lightly
     Threaded with stars,
Scattering jewels on the fence
     And the pasture bars;
As dawn leaves the dry grass bright
     And the tangled weeds
Bearing a rainbow gem
     On each of their seeds;
So has your love, my lover,
     Fresh as the dawn,
Made me a shining road
     To travel on,
Set every common sight
     Of tree or stone
Delicately alight
     For me alone.
