SACRED To the memory of Mrs. ELIZABETH widow of the late Miers Burton who died Feb 14th 1841 in the 47th year of her age O could this verse her fair example spread and teach the living while it praised the dead Then reader, should it speak her hope devine Not to record her faith but strengthen thine. Then should her ev'ry virtue stand contest Till ev'ry virtue kindle in the breast But if thou slight the monitory strain and she has lived, to thee at least in vain Yet let her death an awful lesson give The dying christian speaks to all that live Enough for her that here her ashes rest Till God's own plaudit shall her worth attest.
