ON MY DEAR GRANDCHILD SIMON WHO DIED ... ONE MONTH AND ONE DAY OLD, by             Poet's Biography
First Line: No sooner came, but gone, and fall'n asleep
Last Line: Among the blessed in endless joys remain.
Subject(s): Children; Home; Marriage; Puritans; Sickness; Childhood; Weddings; Husbands; Wives; Illness


No sooner came, but gone, and fall'n asleep,
Acquaintance short, yet parting caused us weep;
Three flowers, two scarcely blown, the last i' th' bud,
Cropped by th' Almighty's hand; yet is He good.
With dreadful awe before Him let's be mute,
Such was His will, but why, let's not dispute,
With humble hearts and mouths put in the dust,
Let's say He's merciful as well as just.
He will return and make up all our losses,
And smile again after our bitter crosses
Go pretty babe, go rest with sisters twain;
Among the blessed in endless joys remain.
