Anne Wales Abbot appears to have been primarily a writer of short stories. The volume Autumn Leaves, a compilation of short works published "with the hope of aiding a work of charity," contains two poems ascribed to her: "The Sounds of Morning in Cambridge" and "The Sounds of Evening in Cambridge."
