Little georgie may
Beloved daughter
1 Year 1 month 16 days
Died 1885
Her headstone stands lonely
In the corner of a family plot
Fenced with homemade wrought iron
Now rusted
Among unkempt grasses
Beloved daughter
Well loved enough to warrant a headstone
And a handmade fence
Her heart fills with its emptiness
Fills with the loss of her own
Sweet daughter
That beautiful little doll
With straight black hair
And china blue almond-shaped eyes
And exquisite little hands
Her dimple in her cheeks
Her own little georgie may
Her own beloved daughter
Surrounded alone by a homemade fence
Rusting in her heart
