In Heaven as on Earth Eternally United. No Time the Dear Remembrance can Remove. No Time Shall Cancel thy Desert. Ev'n o'er your Marble Tomb my Constant Heart will ever Mourn. He Sleeps in Dust & all the Muses Mourn. The Obvious Ills which Checker HumanLife to the Sweet Babe are Happily Unknown. In Silent Sorrow o'er they Tomb I'll Mourn. Why do thou Mourn while he with Kindred Angels Reign. The Feeling Heart alone should Tarry here. In grief of Heart I drop the Dutious Tear. Like a Flower in Early Bloom in Early Bloom she Died. Still shall thy Grave with rising Flowers be Drest and the Green Turf lye lightly on they Brest. Here shall the Morn her Earliest Tears bestow Here the First Rose in the year shall Blow.
