"She lived upon the stage / Of measured days" - These great lines are so very true for all of us, but it seems Martha Anne used her brief time enjoying life. Very vivid & emotional, well done.

Sad and beautiful. Martha Anne knew the joy of life and how to express it. I can picture her on stage. Thank you.
