To the dear memory of

Elizabeth Gumbleton
of Bedford,

Oh think to step ashore
and that shore heaven:
To clasp a hand outstretched,
and that, God’s hand:
To breathe new air,
and that, celestial air:
To feel refreshed,
and know it immortality
Oh think to pass from storm and stress
to one unbroken calm
to wake and find it glory
Anon
