Hannah F. Gould, Signed and Autographed Poem "Name In The Sand"


 


Single page autographed and signed poem, 6.5" x 7.75". Penned by Gould to recto and verso, and both signed and dated by her on the verso as "Hannah F. Gould", "January 1858". Page torn along top edge, affecting a portion of the title on the recto and one word along the top of the verso. Lightly toned with faint handling marks, lightly tacked along right edge to another sheet. Her most famous poem. Rare.


 


 


 


A Name in the Sand


 


Alone I walked the ocean strand;


     A pearly shell was in my hand:


I stooped and wrote upon the sand


     My name - the year - the day.


As onward from the spot I passed,


     One lingering look behind I cast;


A wave came rolling high and fast,


     And washed my lines away.


 


And so, methought, ’twill shortly be


     With every mark on Earth from me:


A wave of dark oblivion’s sea


     Will sweep across the place


Where I have trod the sandy shore


     Of time, and been, to be no more,


Of me - my day - the name I bore,


     To leave nor track nor trace.


 


And yet, with Him who counts the sands


     And holds the waters in his hands,


I know a lasting record stands


     Inscribed against my name,


Of all this mortal part has wrought,


     Of all this thinking soul has thought,


And from these fleeting moments caught


     For glory or for shame.


 


Hannah Flagg Gould


January 1858


 


 


Hannah Flagg Gould (September 3, 1789 – September 5, 1865) a 19th-century American poet whose father had been a soldier in the American Revolutionary War. After her mother's death, she became his constant companion, which accounts for the patriotism of her earlier verses. Gould's poems were short, but they were frequently nearly perfect in their kind. Nearly all of them appeared originally in annuals, magazines, and other miscellanies, and their popularity was shown by the subsequent sale of several collective editions.
