The dark unfathom'd caves of ocean bear:
Full many a flower is born to blush unseen,
And waste its sweetness on the desert air.”

"Here lies the bones of Richard Lawton
Whose death, alas,strangely
brought on
trying his corns one day to mow off,
His razor slipped and cut his toeoff,
His toe, or rather what it grew to,
An inflammation quickly flew to,
Which took, alas! to mortifying,
And was the cause of Richard's dying".

Back to back, my wife and I!!
When the last trumpet the air

"Underneath lies piles of stones,
Lies all that's left of Sally Jones.
Her name was Briggs, it was not Jones,
But Jones was used to rhyme with stones".

Lewder
Who burst while drinking a

Called from this world to her
Heavenly rest!
She should  have waited till it 
effervesced".
