Andrew Macphail, comp.  The Book of Sorrow.  1916.
 
XXIX. The Happy Dead
Upon a Child that died
By Robert Herrick (1591–1674)
 
HERE she lies, a pretty bud,
Lately made of flesh and blood:
Who as soon fell fast asleep
As her little eyes did peep.
Give her strewings, but not stir        5
The earth that lightly covers her.
