Let's talk of graves and worms and epitaphs.
Shakespeare

 

 

An Epitaph A Day - October 30

Keeps Death's Spectre Away


In Halifax churchyard

on ESTER BREARCLIKFE,
and FAVOUR, her son.

Here rest three Saints; the one a little Brother,
The FAVOUR of his scarce surviving Mother:

Then she expir'd, and bore unto her Tomb
An unborn Infant coffin'd in her Womb.
