THE PARSON'S GRAVE - George Crabbe Poems


Poems » george crabbe » the parson s grave


His tombstone tells a tale of woe --
    The story of a saddened life --
"Here lies the Reverend Jonas Lowe,
    The victim of a faithless wife."

And we who knew that parson dear,
    Bemoan the wrecks Eve's daughters cause,
And having dropped the casual tear,
    Still speculate, -- Whose wife it was?
