Susanna May Lougheed
Biography of Susanna May Lougheed
This is my grandmother I never met. She died of blood poisoning at the age of 40. She had two children, Raymond and Ruth Rutland. She married Frederick Rutland and came to America in 1923. As far as I can tell, her poetry was written before she was married. After she married and when she immigrated to America, she went by the name May Rutland.
I have more poetry, I'm going to see if anybody is interested in seeing more of it.
Susanna May Lougheed Poems
Dearest our day is over, ended our dream divine You must go back to your life, I must go back to mine. How can I live without you, how can I let you go. I that you love so well dear, you that I worship so.
Nothing To You
It is nothing to you that I am lonely It is nothing to you my hopes have flown It is nothing to you that I'm pining For you along, for you alone.
To F.P. From M. Lougheed
They say I should not love him, or wish his face to see. Because he wed another and proved false to me. But I cannot speak unkindly, let them say what'er they will. There is a charm about him that makes me love him still.
Deal Gently With The Motherless
Deal gently with the motherless, and let your words be kind A treasure like the one she's lost that girl can never find.
Nothing To You
It is nothing to you that I am lonely
It is nothing to you my hopes have flown
It is nothing to you that I'm pining
For you along, for you alone.
It is nothing to you that tender memories
Deep in my heart still linger there
Nothing to you my heart is breaking
Nothing to you that I still care.
