“Warm summer sun shine kindly here,
Warm southern wind blow softly here,
Green sod above, lie light, lie light –
Good night, dear heart,
Good night, good night.”
Inscription on the gravestone of Olivia Susan “Susy” Clemens (1872 – 1896).
From the poem ‘Annette’ by Robert Richardson, adapted by Susy’s heartbroken father Mark Twain.
