ELIZABETH AKERS ALLEN
The final lines of her well-loved poem "Rock Me to Sleep", signed as Elizabeth Akers
Autograph Poem signed: "Clasped to your heart in a loving embrace,/With your light lashes just swiping my face,/Never hereafter to wake or to weep./Rock me to sleep, mother - Rock me to sleep!"/Elizabeth Akers/September, 1902". 4x2½. American author Elizabeth Chase Akers Allen (1832-1911) wrote both prose and poetry, but is best remembered for her poems, especially for the 6 stanza poem "Rock Me to Sleep" (1882), a lament on the death of a mother, the last four lines of which she has written here. Allen also wrote for the Atlantic Monthly, and reported from Europe for the Portland [Maine] Transcript and the Boston Evening Gazette. In 1860 she married sculptor Paul Akers, who died the following year. She re-married (to E. M. Allen) in 1865, but has nevertheless signed here as Elizabeth Akers. She also wrote under the pen name Florence Percy. Toned and creased. Multiple folds. Otherwise, fine condition.
