Ireland, Who Departed This Life by lbluejaye8

Ireland, Who Departed This Life

"The weathered slate, whittled into the crude shape of a tombstone, stood tucked under a lone magnolia branch. Gray-green moss coated the facade, yet faintly discernible, a partial inscription read, "Ireland, who departed this life, August 25th, 1826." The last vestiges of this unnamed soul silently dissipated . . . ashes to ashes, dust to dust." (Laurie Frazier)
Beautifully captured.

@linnypinny Thank you, Lin. I am captivated by old graveyards and if only the tombstones could whisper . . .

@maggiemae I know! Found it in Savannah, Georgia, at the DAR Cemetery. Could spend hours upon hours reading tombstones and wondering . . .
