- Stop, Christian passer-by : Stop, child of God,
- And read, with gentle breast. Beneath this sod
- A poet lies, or that which once seem'd he—
- O, lift one thought in prayer for S. T. C.—
- That he who many a year with toil of breath
- Found death in life, may here find life in death :
- Mercy for praise—to be forgiven for fame—
- He ask'd, and hoped through Christ. Do thou the same.
9 November 1833, published 1834.
