The Parson's Grave
Thomas Craig, Beira Ballads and Rhodesian Rhymes, &c. (Salisbury, Rhodesia: the Author, 1901): 94. X.908/19443 British Library
1His tombstone tells a tale of woe --
2 The story of a saddened life --
3"Here lies the Reverend Jonas Lowe,
4 The victim of a faithless wife."
5And we who knew that parson dear,
6 Bemoan the wrecks Eve's daughters cause,
7And having dropped the casual tear,
8 Still speculate, -- Whose wife it was?
