Ethel Lynn Beers
“'All quiet along the Potomac,' they say, / 'Except now and then a stray picket / Is shot, as he walks on his beat to and fro, / By a rifleman hid in the thicket ... '”
“All quiet along the Potomac to-night; / No sound save the rush of the river; / While soft falls the dew on the face of the dead — / The picket's off duty forever!”
Ethel Lynn Beers, U.S. poet
(1827 - 1879)
Full name: Ethel Lynn Eliot Beers.
