Bridgeport in Harrison County, West Virginia — The American South (Appalachia)
Dear friend, beware as you stand by
As you are now, so once was I
As I am now, so you will be,
So get prepared to follow me.
“To follow you I am not content
Until I know which way you went."
We are such things
As dreams are made of
And our little life is
Rounded with a sleep.
Green be the turf above thee
Friend of thy better day
None knew thee but to love thee
Nor name thee but to praise.
State Of West Virginia
Cecil H. Underwood, Governor
Joseph Minard, Senator
