“To lie in the soft brown earth,
with the grasses waving above one's head,
and listen to silence. To have no yesterday, and no tomorrow.
To forget time, to forgive life, to be at peace.”
- Oscar Wilde

So sweet, so sad
When I go traipsing through cemeteries I am always thinking of the stones from the perspective of history or art, and then I come across a marker such as this one. So sweet, and yet so sad, a memorial to a lost child.
