Waldo Emerson

Sleepy Hollow Cemetery,
Concord, Massachusetts

[Inscription on the Front Side of Monument]

The hyacinthine boy for whom
Morn well might break and April bloom.

[Inscription on the Back Side of Monument]

Ah me! It was my childhood's thought
If He should make my web a blot
On life's fair picture of delight
My heart's content would find it right.

Son of Ralph Waldo Emerson
