A Humble Tribute
To the memory of MRS. MARY
who went from
home to home, beloved by all, Thursday, august 6th, 1903.
Good-by, Good-by! Thy spirit wings
Have wafted thee so far away,
That ere my Muse this requiem sings,
Thouílt see the light of endless day.
Thouíst left behind so many friends,
To weep and miss thee many a year;
Dear ones at home, whoíll comprehend
What they have lost and still hold dear.
Good-by, Good-by! For we no more
May meet and greet thee face to face,
Until upon a fairer shore,
And in a purer, happier place.
But recollection sweet will trace
Deep in our hearts, thy virtues here;
That deeds of christian love and grace,
Will ever make thy memory dear.
DAVID FLETCHER HUNTON.
