PASSING feet pause, as they pass,
  By this little slab of slate.
People, if they go this way,
  By the linchen’d wicket gate,
At each other look and say,        5
“Pity, pity! sad it was!”
  Here have fallen as many tears
  As the months in her short years.
 
Seven and ten brief sunny springs;
  Scarce so many winter snows:        10
Here the little speedwell keeps
  Watch beside the pale dog-rose;
On this hillock, while she sleeps
Underneath, the red-breast sings.
  Wedded on an April day!        15
  In the Autumn laid away!
