Because I Could Not Stop For Death
By Emily Dickinson
Because I could not stop for Death,
He kindly stopped for me;
The carriage held but just ourselves
We slowly drove, he knew no haste,
And I had put away
My labor, and my leisure too,
For his civility.
We passed the school, where children strove
At recess, in the ring;
We passed the fields of gazing grain,
We passed the setting sun.
Or rather, he passed us;
The dews grew quivering and chill,
For only gossamer my gown,
My tippet only tulle.
We paused before a house that seemed
A swelling of the ground;
The roof was scarcely visible,
The cornice but a mound.
Since then 'tis centuries, and yet each
Feels shorter than the day
I first surmised the horses' heads
Were toward eternity.
Thank you and God Bless.
SFC Kathline D. Forrester

|GMG||William David Gaston|
Thank you for transferring the memorial of William David Gaston, who is buried at Forest Hills Cemetery in Chattanooga, Tennessee to my care. I added the obituary that you kindly included with the transfer. Your work here at Find-a-Grave is invaluable to individuals like me doing family research. ~ with appreciation, George Gaston

|Linda Linn||David Layton at Oakwood Cemetery, Stratford, IA|
I noticed that you have added a "flower" to this person's memorial, but I believe that your information is for a different David Layton who also lived in Iowa. The person who is buried at Stratford served in the 32nd Iowa Infantry and died in 1864 as shown on the gravestone.
The one who served in the California infantry and died in 1906 is buried in Cherokee, IA http://www.findagrave.com/cgi-bin/fg.cgi?page=gr&GRid=65532729.
|Rodney Sneed||RE: memorial # 6763631|
Why would you want me to remove a photo from a gravestone that I added and why would you take it upon yourself to add one to it? This is my family.

|Leon Barton||Leona Shoaf|
Leona Shoaf has been linked to her parents. You are welcome.
Hey are you related to the Barks, because I'm not and I was hoping to transfer Herbert Bernard and Elizabeth B. Barks to the one who is related to them. I've also did some research on them by the way.
