Comments about Sarah Orne Jewett
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.
