The Oak on the Mountain's Summit by Mary Baker Eddy
Mary Baker Eddy wrote "The Oak on the Mountain's Summit," on August 2, 1882. Considered in the context of her life, the words of this poem take on deeper poignancy and vision.
During the summer of 1882, Mary Baker Eddy spent several weeks in Vermont at the home of one of her students. She had retired there after the sudden passing of her husband, Asa Gilbert Eddy, on June 2. Her stay in Vermont gave her a refuge while she worked through issues of grief and loneliness. On August 2, just days before her return to Boston, she wrote this poem. Considered in the context of her life, the words take on deeper poignancy and vision, as she finds courage to face the future.
