Sadly, Teasdale did commit suicide in 1933.  This is not uncommon for poets, unfortunately.  She took barbiturates after suffering from pneumonia.  She never seems to have good physical or mental health.

    Thanks so much! Her fiance, Vachel Lindsay, commited suicide shortly after she married Ernst Filsinger. He ,too, was a poet. Your reply was useful in my project! thanks
