A Founding Member of The Association of Graveyard Rabbits

 

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

 

 

Death Is A Fisherman


An Epitaph A Day
Keeps Death's Spectre Away


Buckinghamshire

HIGH WYCOMBE.

Death is a fisherman; the world we see

A fish-pond is, and we the fishes be;

He sometimes angles, like doth with us play,

And slily take us, one by one, away.
