Eliza R. Snow is referred to as “Zion’s Poetess,” largely due to the fact she wrote over 500 poems during her life time. She was twenty-one years old when her first poem appeared under a pseudonym in a frontier Ohio newspaper and eight weeks away from her death at the age of eighty-three when her last poem appeared in the Mormon Woman’s Exponent.
