One of her verses, from "Songs from the Wings," is entitled "To my father--Patrick Sarsfield Gilmore": "Though he is dead, I still may do/ Him honor, by a life akin/ To that pure life my childhood knew,/ His fatherheart within./ And for the true musician's place,/ You claimed a throne beside the priest;/ Since both, you said, redeemed the base,/ And blessed both great and least." In this song, her verse was set to music by Alfred George Robyn (1860-1935) a composer of light opera and founder of the Marion English Opera Company in New York.
