                        I had not time to bid you all farewell.
                        Think nothing strange, death happens unto all
                        My lot's today, tomorrow yours may fall.
                        God calling yet! I cannot stay.
                        My heart I yield without delay.
                        Vain world farewell! from thee I part.

Back cover:  Plain, just the double border and the tiny print "M 34" in the lower right corner.
No mention of a funeral director or place of burial....... with the front design I take it that his ship (Life) has been anchored.
