Picture Study – Fitz Henry Lane (1804-1865)
Poet Study – Mistress Anne Bradstreet (1612-1672)
Farewell dear babe, my heart’s too much content,
Farewell sweet babe, the pleasure of mine eye,
Farewell fair flower that for a space was lent,
Then ta’en away unto eternity.
Blest babe why should I once bewail thy fate,
Or sigh the days so soon were terminate;
Sith thou art settled in an everlasting state.
– from ‘In Memory of My Dear Grandchild’
