Comic Epitaphs from the Very Best Old Graveyards

This is a sweet, old slim volume from Peter Pauper Press.  Here are a few selections:

For a dentist:

Stranger tread

This ground with gravity

Dentist Brown is filling

His last cavity

On a music teacher:

Stephen and Time

Are both now even

Stephen beat time

Now Time beat Stephen

A Bedford Tombstone

Here lies my wife

In earthy mould

Who when she lived

Did naught but scold

Good friends go softly

In your walking

Lest she should wake

And rise up talking
