Not illustrated. 1837 edition. Excerpt: ...lasl repects to the venerable dead. EUSEBEUS HOAG. original. The Family Grave-Yard. 1 sought the place where my Fore fathers ilepl And there in sadness I wept for the dead; There all around me lay my kindred earth. Cold, silent, and mouldering down to dust There stood a blackened, broken, monument, It bore my grand-sire's name, vain, mortal man! Can'st thou with stone and marble save a name That's doomed to deep and sure oblivion. Next lay may Father. Oft In infant years By my fond mother led, we sought that place, And there she wept, her cherished hopes all tic d; Uerselfa widow, and her child an orphan: And there she prayed, for strength, for fortitude. And Tor her young, helpless, dependent child. Bock to my heart with overwhelming grief Came agonising thoughts of other years, When my last parent, my loved mother passed From earth, from life, and my embrace away. And ob, my wife, my wife, she too was there, While I beside her stood and was alone: Her look of love, her fondly beaming smile. Her joyous welcome, and her dear carreas. All, all were gone. I stood of hope bereft, A solitary being midst my friends; My foot upon the place where 1 shall rest When life's short varied day Is o'er: And here I said, let me be placed and left To mingle with the common earth unwept-Let no one stand beside my grave and feel The desolation of an empty heart.
