Rachel married a man named Arthor Pedersen in 1935. Rachel died in a hospital in California. The reason she died was from a sickness called pneumonia in 1942. She died at age 46

I chose to mention "Something told the Geese" Because i liked that it was about nature. I also no that she ment how the geese could tell that winter was coming despite it still looking like summer. I also liked how she detailed the poem.
