  1. Whew, that’s a tough one. I think this is a poem in old english that begins
    And O’er her grave
    ??ch dawning day (first word could be “each”)
    ???????????? save
    (fourth line sunk in the ground but I’ll bet it rhymes with “day”.)

    Probably something sweet about angels watching over her every day. I’ve seen a few of these similar poems. I googled the first line, but didn’t find anything so it may not be a standard verse. Family may have created it.

    Wish I could help you out better.
