St Margarets Church  Posted 1905



Here lies in one grave more than one Grave;

Envious Death at last has gained his Prize;

No Pills or Potions here could make him tarry,

Resolv'd he was to fetch away old Harry.

You foolish Doctors could you all miscarry!

Great were his actions on the tempestuous waves,

Resistless seas could never conquer Graves.

At Colchester he met this overthrow,

Unhappily you lost him at a blow;

Each marine hero shed for him a tear

St Margret's now in him must have a share.
