In memory of THEODOSIA the wife of Andrew Reed who departed this life the 19th of March 1753 Aged 32 years.
Life's maze I've trod; I've met th' appointed Day;
And here in Dust now sleeps my breathless clay.
The Blow how sudden; how severe the Dart;
How early levelled at my tender Heart.
But stop, kind reader; cease to view me here;
Know where I dwell, above the starry sphere.
Would you, secure, the threats of Death defy,
Like me religious live; like me serenely die.
