My Autograph

Original Text: 
Thomas Fisher Rare Book Library MS. 3080, holograph collection of poems, "Written for Agnes Dunbar FitzGibbon, with the love and blessing of her old Mother Susanna Moodie -- March -- 6th -- 1866."
2        How vain the feeble trust,
3        To be remembered
4    When the hand is dust --
5Grieve rather that the talents freely given
6Were used for earth -- not treasured up for Heaven!
