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 ... '

    • Ethel Lynn Beers,
    • "The Picket Guard," in Harper's Magazine ()
  • 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,
    • "The Picket Guard," in Harper's Magazine ()
