  1. Composer Amy Cheney Beach set this poem to music, and suggested to Mrs. Coates that one line read, 'After despair and doubting' as opposed to 'After regret and doubting.' Mrs. Coates replied to Mrs. Beach, in a letter written on 8 September 1908, thanking her "sensitive genius for a very great improvement which [she] will straightway adopt".
