This poem appears in Holloway Jingles, a collection of poems written by militant suffragettes serving sentences in Holloway Prison during March and April, 1912, which were compiled by a Glaswegian inmate, Nancy A. John, and subsequently published by the Glasgow branch of the W.S.P.U. (the militarist Women's Social and Political Union). This poem is written by one of the Glasgow suffragettes who served a sentence in Holloway, A. A. Wilson. The poem heralds the fact that 'the tide has turned' and urges 'Oh rising tide, flow in!' - presumably an allegory for the rise of women's rights.
