This is an excerpt from a poem…
“To Keep the Memory of Charlotte Forten Grimké”
Where has she gone? And who is there to say?
But this we know: her gentle spirit moves
And is where beauty never wanes,
Perchance by other streams, mid other groves;
And to us there, ah! she remains
A lovely memory
She came, she loved, and then she went away.
