A Child's Grave

More than a hundred years ago
    They raised for her this little stone;
'Miss Polly Townsend, aged nine,'
    It says, is sleeping here alone.

'Twas hard to leave your merry mates
    For ranks of angels robed and crowned,
To sleep until the judgment day
    In Copp's Hill burying-ground.
