In This Book

Eliza Paul Kirkbride Gurney 1801 (Philadelphia, Philadelphia County, Pennsylvania, ) – 1881 (Burlington County, New Jersey)

In this book I have scribbled some innocent rhymes,
In various moods, and at different times;
Some grave and some cheerful, some merry, some sad,
Though none may be good, there are none very bad.
