Excerpt from Gathered Fragments: Easter, Xmas, and Other Poems
This collection of verses is literally what its name implies Gathered Fragments - of the work of one, all of whose work was wrought out of suffering, and yet whose pen, now laid aside, contributed with humour, ten... derness and pathos to what Ruskin calls the greatest of sciences, Humanity. Most of the poems have never been in print. Many, especially those of a serious character, were suggested by the individual experiences of her friends. All of them will have for those who knew her the charm of her own personality but, above all, they bear the impress of a character purified, strengthened and exalted by crucial discipline of a faith brave and unshaken, Though He slay me.
