Excerpt from Poems

In making this small collection of poems from among those left by Miss Powers, the object has not been to offer them to the public, nor as a contribution to literature; but as a part of herself, an echo of that dear voice that is forever still, they are now printed as a last token for those who loved her. That she wrote verses at all will be a surprise to many who knew her well. So modest was she about claiming any merit for them, calling them "Rhymes" simply, even to her nearest friends, that it is with a sense of silent apology to her that I have ventured to gather together these scattered threads.

It would be impossible for me to write a fitting memorial of Miss Powers.
