to the memory of 3 beloved children who died in 1833 of a fatal fever, Elizabeth

Our bay trees are blasted our charms are fled
Our lights are extinguished our lovely are dead

And grant them in heaven forever to bloom
And shine as the stars and live in the light
That grief never sighed in nor turns into night.
