My Dream

"I drempt I was in Heaven,
Among the angels fair;
Id hear, seen, none so handsome
That twine in golden hair.
They looked so neat and sang so sweet
And playd the golden harp.

I was about to pick an angel out
And take her to my heart;
But the moment I began to plea
I thought of you my love,
There was none Id seen so beautifull
On Earth or Heaven above.

Goodbye my dear wife and mother,
Also my sisters

Rufus Buck
