On your snowy wings

During my visit to Bokes Creek Cemetery, I noticed a perfect epitaph for a winter day, the snow on the ground and on the gravestones giving another meaning to snowy wings.

O BEAR ME AWAY
ON YOUR SNOWY WINGS
TO MY
ETERNAL HOME
 
 
The zinc monument marks the graves of Jacob Dilsaver (d. 1854) and Eliza Dilsaver (d. 1886), his wife.
