NEWCOMB



Sacred to the memory of
Kezia Newcomb, who died Feb.
20th 1822,
in the 17th year of her age.
Beneath this urn in soft repose
To wait the final doom (dawn?)
Lies a lov'd flower which like the rose
Had but a transient bloom
------
Hopes brightest scenes ware (sic) soon o'er cast
By a thick sable cloud
And the sweet flower retir'd at last
For shelter in a shroud.
