Beneath this little grassy mound in the maples
we have laid you Father gently down to rest
near the loved ones gone before you sleeping in
the church yard ground.
Your memory leaves our aching hearts bereft
At twilight when the robin sings his very cheerful
notes the songbird that you always used to love.
May the angels guide thy spirit upon its home-
where in glory we may meet in heaven above.
: Father, Mother
