Here lies a MARY, Mirror of her Sex,
For all that best their Souls or Bodies decks:
Faith, Form or Fame; the Miracle of Youth,
For Zeal and Knowlege of the sacred Truth:
For frequent reading of the holy Writ,
For fervent Prayer, and for Practice fit.
For meditation full of Use and Art,
For humbleness in Habit and in Heart:
For pious, prudent, peaceful, praiseful Life,
For all the Duties of a Christian Wife;
For patient bearing seven dead-bearing Throws,
For one alive, which yet dead with her goes,
From Travers her dear Spouse, her Father Hayes,
Lord Maior, more honoured in her Virtuous Praise.
