Here snug in a grave my wife doth lie,
She is at rest, and so am I,
Who for beneath this stone doth rest
Has joined the army oft he blest.
The lord has taken her to the sky;
The Saints rejoice, and so do I
Tears cannot restore her, therefore I cry.
Raymond Lamont-Brown: Scottish Epitaphs. Edinburgh, Chambers; 1990
