Miss Gertrude Alger was a very young poet of merit, who produced graceful and finished poems. Born in Yarmouthport, Massachusetts on May 19, 1868, she died October 25, 1889, at the age of twenty-one. These poems were arranged by her mother. This memorial volume is Gertrude's only published work. Poems are presented by year of composition 1882-1888. One or two of her poems found their place in late nineteenth century collections of contemporaneous poetry. 1885 poem titled 'Summer Rain': Spirits of the summer shower,/ Tiptoeing from flower to flower,/ Here and there, and everywhere,/ tripping! tripping!/ In between the petals fair/ Of the blossoms, slipping, slipping!/ Dancing over/ Rosy beds of nodding clover!/ And I hear - or is it fancy?/ All the garden flowers dipping,/ Swaying, tipping;/ Every rose and purple pansy/ Curtsying, now here, now there,/ Light as air;/ Bending low its pretty head/ 'Neath the shower-spirits' tread.

Signed Poetry::Before 1900
