Nora May French was a poet caught between the Victorian and evolving modern era. She was born in the state of New York in 1881 and took her own life with cyanide at the age of 26 in 1907. "It was her personal nearness to the great unseen," Mary Austin tried to explain the tragedy. "To her the film between life and the hereafter was so thin that it seemed but a little thing to break through it."

Mary Austin lauded her as, “the only other woman in our circle whose gifts approached Sterling’s or London’s.”

I have an idea that all sensible people
will ultimately be damned.

Growth

By Nora May French

I twine you, little trellis, close and fond,
And swing in wistful threads above, beyond,
For air and space to bloom. Be it so.
Ah me! I love you, but the plant must grow.

I quiver with the call of summer heat,
With all the wild sap stirring at my feet.
My quiet trellis, impotent to know
The earth and sun command me: I must grow.

You cannot share my ardent life apart,
Nor feel the upward straining of my heart.
In every vein the urging currents flow,
Leaf after leaf unfolds: the plant must grow.
