An Epitaph

An Epitaph

Here lies a most beautiful lady,
Light of step and heart was she;
I think she was the most beautiful lady
That ever was in the West Country.

But beauty vanishes, beauty passes;
However rare rare it be;
And when I crumble, who will remember
This lady of the West Country.

Poem An Epitaph - Walter De La Mare
