Epitaphs for a Child

1 Hush! my dear, lie still and slumber, Holy angels guard thy bed!
2 The dutifulness of children is the foundation of all virtues
3 Children, ay, forsooth,
They bring their own love with them when they come
4 What would the world be to us if children were no more?
5 Oh, for boyhood’s time of June, crowding years in one brief moon
6 Sleep undisturbed within this peaceful shrine,
Till angels wake thee with a note like thine
Samuel Johnson

8 Sleep my little one, sleep

18 Let thy child rest in hope and rise in glory
19 Awaiting the touch of a little hand, the smile of a little face
