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.
