Notes

Not much biographical information is known of this poet.  Ms. Davies was born sometime in the late 19th Century, probably the early 1990's (one source gives 1888).  Her poems are some of this writer's favorites from this era.  For what is known of her story, I recommend a read at the Poetry Foundation, publishers of the magzine POETRY, founded in Chicago in1912 -- the oldest poetry magazine in the English-speaking world.  You can also find examples of her poetry there.

Mary Carolyn Davies (1888?- ??), American poet

Heartbreak that is too new
Can not be used to make
Beauty that will startle;
That takes an old heartbreak.

Old heartbreaks are old wine.
Too new to pour is mine.


from Youth Riding (1919)
