In ever fond and loving memory of my precious wife
Eleanora Katherine Robertson
Who was called to rest on the
31st of August 1834, aged 21 years and 20 days

One bud the Gardner gave me
A fair and lovely child
He gave it to my keeping
To cherish undefiled
It lay upon m y bosom
It was my pride and joy
Perhaps it was an idol
That I must be denied
For just as it was opening
In glory to the day
Came down the Heavenly Gardner
And took my bud away
Weep not methought he whispered
Thy bud shall be restored
I take it but to plant it
In the garden of the Lord

R.I.P.

Erected by her sorrowing husband
Francis Edmund Robertson
