Maude Elizabeth Seymour Abbott is better known for her medical career than her poetry. While she published upwards of 50 texts (pamphlets, books, and a book chapter in Sir William Osler‘s monumental Systems of Modern Medicine ), she produced only one pamphlet of poetry, a very small chapbook entitled Christmas (1929). While this was released at Christmas, two of the three poems it contains were written in October of 1929. The first of these was posted on 3 October 2014; this is the second:

Charles Rowley, the step-son of Beatrice Rowley (“R. H. Grenville”), has shared with us a number of letters and cards containing poetry written for the family by his step-mother. The author has kindly given us permission to publish any of her poems and photos that Charles has provided for us. This previously published poem was sent in a card dated 26 July 2007, accompanied by a photo of Beatrice Rowley taken at her 90th birthday celebration, 10 July 2007 (her birthday is 9 July).
