"Prolific poet and journalist Ella Wheeler Wilcox was born in Johnstown, Wisconsin. As a teenager, she published poems in the Waverly Magazine and Leslie's Weekly. She studied at the University of Wisconsin, but left after just a year to focus on her writing. Wilcox's essays appeared widely in magazines such as Cosmopolitan, and she wrote popular poetry, generally in plain, rhyming verse. She published her first book, Drops of Water (1872), when she was 22 years old." -Poetry Foundation 250 pp.
