Laura Elizabeth Richards (1850-1943). Ironically , her mother was the poet Julia Ward Howe and is better known than her daughter as she is best known as the author of "Battle Hymn of the Republic".
Oh! little loveliest lady mine,
What shall I send for your valentine?
Summer and flowers are far away;
Gloomy old Winter is king to-day;
Buds will not blow, and sun will not shine:
What shall I do for a valentine?
