Poetry Friday “To the Memory of Abigail Adams”

We built a cairn, replete with loving thought

Of her, who Queen of Daughters, earned a nation’s praise

If glories in the light of freedom sought

For all the Sons and Daughters of the coming days.

Its corner stone resplendent shines,

To bear the gaze of peoples yet unborn.

Its rugged form a mother-love enshrines

Strong beacon of our land, till dawns eternal morn,

Watch tenderly, O Air! O Sky! O Fates!

And may these stones, so blessed by loving hearts and hands

Be lasting symbols of our glorious states,

Built up by noble Souls for pilgrims of all lands.

  1. From the Quincy Patriot Ledger:
    “This poem was written by Elizabeth Porter Gould and read at the 1896 dedication of the cairn. It was included in the time capsule:”
