Who is Lucy Maud Montgomery

Lucy Maud Montgomery (November 30, 1874 – April 24, 1942), published as L. M. Montgomery, was a Canadian author best known for a collection of novels, essays, short stories, and poetry beginning in 1908 with Anne of Green Gables. She published 20 novels as well as 530 short stories, 500 poems, and 30 essays. Anne of Green Gables was an immediate success; the title character, orphan Anne Shirley, made Montgomery famous in her lifetime and gave her an international following. Most of the novels were set in Prince Edward Island, and those locations within Canada's smallest province became a literary landmark and popular tourist site – namely Green Gables farm, the genesis of Prince Edward Island National Park. She was made an officer of the Order of the British Empire in 1935.

Lucy Maud Montgomery Poems

  • Out O'doors
    There's a gypsy wind across the harvest land,
    Let us fare forth with it lightly hand in hand;
    Where cloud shadows blow across the sunwarm waste,
    And the first red leaves are falling let us haste, ...
  • One Of The Shepherds
    We were out on the hills that night
    To watch our sheep;
    Drowsily by the fire we lay
    Where the waning flame did flicker and leap, ...
  • A Shore Twilight
    Lo, find we here when the ripe day is o'er
    A kingdom of enchantment by the shore!

    Behold the sky with early stars ashine, ...
  • When The Fishing Boats Go Out
    When the lucent skies of morning flush with dawning rose once more,
    And waves of golden glory break adown the sunrise shore,
    And o'er the arch of heaven pied films of vapor float.
    There's joyance and there's freedom when the fishing boats go out. ...
  • In Port
    Out of the fires of the sunset come we again to our own­
    We have girdled the world in our sailing under many an orient star;
    Still to our battered canvas the scents of the spice gales cling,
    And our hearts are swelling within us as we cross the harbor bar. ...

Poem of the day

Edgar Albert Guest Poem
 by Edgar Albert Guest

The joy of life is living it, or so it seems to me;
In finding shackles on your wrists, then struggling till you're free;
In seeing wrongs and righting them, in dreaming splendid dreams,
Then toiling till the vision is as real as moving streams.
The happiest mortal on the earth is he who ends his day
By leaving better than he found to bloom along the way.
Were all things perfect here there would be naught for man to do;
If what is old were good enough we'd never need the new.
