TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: Epitaph of a gossip

TOMBSTONE TUESDAY: Epitaph of a gossip


Here is an epitaph about a woman who in life was evidently a great gossip:

‘Tread softly, reader, lest you wake,
The greatest talker that e’er spake;
‘Tis chance, but if her dust you move,
Each atom there a tongue may prove;
And tho’ she rises all alone,
You’ll think it a general resurrection.
