To the
Memory of
Mary Ann Starbuck

who died
Oct. 21 1838
Æ 28

Who can portray the fulness of the heart
When those we love return the last embrace?
Where earth & heaven reclaim their kindred hart
And memory true, recalls each hallowed trace?
When beauty, worth, and tallent sleep in death,
Where all that gives to life its dearest charm
When every treasured hope & joy is fled
What can sustain but heavens eternal arm
On this we rest, in this one place our trust
And with an eye of faith and not of sight
Behold the spirit risen from its dust
And joined with angels in the realm of light.
