Such poetry in these old words and verses. It has also been a long - joyful? - wait in their vault.

were they really in joyful hope of resurrection...?

These old gravestones conceal much history, whimsy, tragedy, romance, and of course hope...

They don't write them like that anymore. Fantastic picture.

Yes, they don't write them like that anymore. I was reading an American blog somewhere that was collecting all the different ways that dying was described on headstones. This would add to her collection.

I suspect, but obviously do not know, that they are still joyfully waiting.

Thanks for this contribution to Taphophile Tragics, Wibbo. I appreciation your post.

The passed on with great expectations, it seems. Something most us now do not have.
