Mary Ann H. T. Bigelow High Poems
For My Friend Mrs. R
When writing to you, friend, a subject I'd find
In which there's both pleasure and profit combined,
And though what I've chosen may pain in review,
Yet still there's strange mingling of pleasure there too. ...
Let Me Die The Death Of The Righteous
By the river Euphrates the prophet abode,
To whom Balak his messengers sent,
Entreating his presence and curses on those
Who on Moab's destruction were bent. ...

And hope desponding stands,
What comfort these few words bestow,

And his trumpet notes sound

As the shadows of evening around me are falling,
With its dark sombre curtain outspread,

And day's brilliant sunshine hath fled, ...

For those sweet verses thou didst send,

Love to God, and love to man,
Love to do the good I can; ...

To write a few lines to my dear Mrs. N.;
And though nothing of depth she has right to expect;
Yet the will for the deed she will not reject ...

To greet a pastor of our choice,
Without a single jarring note,
And without one dissenting voice. ...
