Morey Bowman was born on January 17, 1882 in Sherbrooke, Quebec. After private
schooling and travel in Europe, Bowman married and settled in Toronto. Her
first book of poems, Moonlight and Common Day, did not appear
until 1922. Her second volume, Dream Tapestries (1924) was
awarded Quebec's Prix David. Two years later, Bowman moved with her husband
to Montreal. In 1937, Bowman served as president of the Montreal Branch
of the Canadian Authors Association. Her final collection, Characters
in Cadence, was published in 1938. L.M. Bowman died in September
of 1944 in Montreal; the Montreal Star mourned the loss of
one of the most authentic of the younger lyric poets of this Dominion,
calling her a writer of rare sincerity, who possessed both vision
and a keen sense of beauty.
