Poem by Sara Teasdale
In the Metropolitan Museum
INSIDE the tiny Pantheon We stood together silently, Leaving the restless crowsd awhile, As ships find shelter from the sea. The ancient centuries came back To cover us a moment's space, And through the dome the light was glad Because it shone upon your face. Ah, not from Rome but farther still Beyond sun-smitten Salamis, The moment took us, till you learned To find the present with a kiss.
