87. An Epitaph
 
HERE lies a most beautiful lady, 
Light of step and heart was she; 
I think she was the most beautiful lady 
That ever was in the West Country. 
But beauty vanishes; beauty passes;         5
However rare—rare it be; 
And when I crumble, who will remember 
This lady of the West Country?
