    Transcription supplied by Carolyn Ernst says:

    In
    memory of
    William Maffett
    Son of
    Samuel and Jane Maffett
    who departed this life
    Oct 8th 1831
    aged 26 years

    O life, frail offspring of a day!
    'Tis puff'd with short gasp away,
    Swift as the short-lived flower, if flies,
    It springs, it blooms, it fades, it dies.
    The sun that makes your violets bloom
    Once cheered his eye now dark in the death,
    The wind that wanders o'er his tomb,
    Was once his vital breath.
