Librettist (possibly?) born Rebecca Perley Page in 1832.
sacred songs I think- though not based on a standard religious text - "He" in all but the first line capitalized and seems to refer either to Christian Deity (or at least one element of the trinity, as keeper of a figurative vineyard) or to Dionysius (probably the former however. Interesting poem, anyway...)
