From that day's
edition of the Hull Packet:
WINTERINGHAM.- Epitaph on the tombstone of a person named Roberts:-
"Our life is but a winter's day -
Some only breakfast,
Others to dinner stay, and are full fed,
The oldest man but sups and goes to bed:
Large is his debt who lingers out the day,
Who goes the first has
the least sum to pay."
There is a quaintness in the idea conveyed in this epitaph which is found in other churchyards. It occurs at Crowland and Llangollen.
