Day 26, NaPoWriMo


Mary Lincoln

“Lady Lincoln”

I keep my fashion as Lady Godey;

my family, aristocratic, glean

that with my many suitors, life is gay

but Lincoln’s borrowed horse not what they dream.

My family prays he is a flimsy fad

but life and love, our fates together deem.

And not historians who cast me ‘mad’;

their hatefulness a jealous motive seem.

The one great truth through all our misery;

a melancholia rings through our past

and not with lies of Herndon’s history.

With love was Mr. Lincoln and I cast.

I cry from out my grave so all may hear:

we are a pair, devout; to each, hold dear!

“My advice to those writing PERSONA POEMS is to learn more about your subject than you will ever need, just as a good fiction writer does when creating characters.”(Christina Lovin)
