An Interesting Epitaph

Apropos of nothing, here’s an old epitaph I found in the 1800s cemetery near my house.


Time was I stood where thou dost now

And viewed the dead as thou dost me

E’er long thou’lt lie as low as I

And others stand and look on thee


How lov’d, how vale’d once avails thee not

To whom related, or by whom begat

A heap of dust alone remains of thee,

‘Tis all thou art and what we all must be
