"Three Sara Teasdale Songs for Soprano and Piano" Opus 15 initially started as two songs but felt incomplete. An early 20th century American lyric poet and first winner of the Pulitzer Prize for poetry in 1917, Teasdale often wrote poetry of intense and powerful sadness. The second song of this set "I Shall Not Care" was rumored to be her suicide note (she took her own life in 1933) though the poem was actually published several years earlier. Teasdale's poetry however can also depict hope and a desire for love. So The thrid song "White Fog," displays an awe of nature as well as self-confidence to make the set more fully representative of Teasdale's character and depth as a poet.
