Her Own Poem
I will steer my bark for the waves roll dark,
I will cross a stranger sea.
But I know I will land on that blest strand;
Where my loved ones are waiting for me.
There are faces there divinely fair
The earth lost long ago;
And foreheads white where curls lay bright
Like sunbeams over the snow.
There are little feet I'd love to meet,
When the world was sweet to me.
I know they will bound,
When the rippling sound of my boat comes over the sea.
I shall see them stand on the gleaming sand,
Their white arms o'er the tide;
Waiting to twine their hands in mine,
When I reach the other side.
