An Epitaph from Amwell

A typical 18th century gravestone

Tho' boistrous winds and Neptune's waves
Have toss/d me to and fro
In spite of all by God's decree
I harbour here below
Where I now at an anchor ride
With many of our fleet
Yet once again I must set sail
Our admiral Christ to meet.

An epitaph from Amwell recorded in Cream of Curiosity
