City At Night poem by Ishan Suman (poet Mary Britton Mille)

The tragic events of Mary Britton Miller's childhood, which haunted her throughout her long life, are depicted in two books. In the Days of Thy Youth , a fictionalized autobiography, and Under Gemini , a memoir, describe the sudden deaths of Miller's parents, within an hour of each other, when Miller and her twin sister, Grace, were four. Moved with two brothers and a sister to their grandmother's Springfield, Massachusetts house, and from thence to other relatives, the twins thought, acted, and reacted as one person. The two books end with another tragedy—the death, by drowning, of twin sister Grace at age fourteen. Of the aborted twinship experience, Miller said "Those early years with her are my treasury … of swift and accurate response to human behavior, of a queer sense of seeing into and through human beings who accompany me through life. Miller attended boarding school in Cambridge, Massachusetts, and subsequently traveled and did volunteer social work in Greenwich Village. The poetry Miller wrote in her free time resulted in her first publications.
