"Adaline Bassett agd 8 yrs. 1 mo / Brooklyn Feb 15 1833 / Childhood / When youths soft season shall be oer / And scenes of childhood charm no more / My riper years with joy shall see / This proof of infant industry / As memory oer this task shall wake / And retrospective pleasure take / How shall I but wish in vain / To enjoy youths careless hours again"
