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”)
(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.
Thank you, Cindy. I did try to zoom in to get the words that were near the ground without success. I Googled the words and came up blank going that route as well.
