My Country
The Mississippi River
Shadowed beneath those awful piles of stone,
Where Liberty has found a Pisgah height,
O'erlooking all the land she loves to bless,
The Empire Of Woman 1: Woman's Empire Defined
The outward world, for rugged toil designed,
Where Evil from true Good the crown hath riven,
Hath been to men's dominion ever given;
Stanzas To The Memory Of L.E.L
And thou art gone! the Bridal Rose
Fresh on thy laurelled head;
A land of new, wild, wondrous scenes
Before thy fancy spread-
The Empire Of Woman 5: The Mother
Earth held no symbol, had no living sign
To image forth the Mother's deathless love;
And so the tender care the righteous prove
The Light Of Home

And thy spirit will sigh to roam:
And thou must go; but never, when there,
Forget the light of home.
The Empire Of Woman 4: The Wife
The Daughter from her father's bosom goes-
The Sister drops her brother's clasping hand-
For God himself ordained a holier band

And cheek like opening blossom,-
Bright gems were twined amid her hair,
And glittered on her bosom,
Three Hours; Or, The Vigil Of Love: First Hour
Many, many years ago,
When the months moved very slow,
Keeping time with minds of men,--
Three Hours; Or, The Vigil Of Love: Second Hour
Many, many years ago,
When all the world moved very slow;
Before the light of Science broke,
