Excerpt from Old Humphrey's Country Strolls
The village church is scarcely a stone's cast from my path. There is the low unobtrusive tower, and there the old yew-tree near the porch! That tree must have stood sentinel over the green hillocks, the monuments, and the tombstones... , for hundreds of years. Beneath its wide-spread branches must have been borne on the bier, the infant of days and the man of years, the parent and the child, the bus band and the wife, in melancholy succession. The churchyard is wrapped in unbroken silence; not a solitary sheep, with a tinkling bell, is grazing amid the graves not a single jackdaw is cawing round the tower. Beneath the brier-bound earth repose the departed inhabitants of the village.
