Still gazing at these ________ of grass
Which will be o’er my body grown
In the midsummer day when you come to the grave
And see the rose in its full bloom
Don’t weep for me when I am gone
When I am gone

[The epitaph comes from a transcription of the cemetery done by Dorothy V. Masters in 1967, when the stone was more complete and readable.]
