· A part-stanza: from ‘Lives of the Obscure’.

By MAURA STANTON [Cerise Press] – 1919. Then nothing for twenty years
Until her first profession of religious vows
When she changed her name to Sister Joan Frances
Of the Sisters of Charity of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
At seventy my cousin published her only book,
Lenin to Gorbachev, a history of communism.
The Telegraph-Herald of Dubuque, Iowa
Records her death in this tiny obituary.
They call her a teacher — don’t mention the book.
