What a gorgeous stone. Few stones made of that Sugarloaf arkose are in such good condition. It gives us a picture of how much we have lost through the action of the elements.

And speaking of verses, that's an interesting one I've never come across before. It appears to be a variant of two lines from Young's Night Thoughts.

This stone is in the same cemetery as the beautiful Sarah Hopkins stone.

There must be something in the environment in that particular graveyard or about the quality of stone in the local quarry that resulted in such well-preserved monuments.
