First Line: Here she lies, a pretty bud
Last Line: The earth that lightly covers her.
Subject(s): Death - Children; Mourning; Death - Babies; Bereavement


Here she lies, a pretty bud,
Lately made of flesh and blood,
Who as soon fell fast asleep
As her little eyes did peep.
Give her strewings, but not stir
The earth that lightly covers her.
