Tinker's Poetic Forms: Epitaph Quatrain
(gurunAthan ramaNi)

01. Lucy!
(iambic pentameter)

Lucy, our child, you lived just for a day, 
And left us both to a life so dull and grim!
Perhaps you had very little left to pay,
And God bestowed a place for you by him!

02. Leader!
(iambic pentameter)

The topsy-turvy leader's laid to rest,
who to masses always gave a homily, 
but he himself for him did what is best 
and left his wealth and estate to his family.
