Grave of William Penn, d. 1718
and his wife Hannah, d. 1726
Jordans Meeting House
No elegy or ivy-mantled tower
© 1991 JOS
For William of the Philadelic State
Rests secret in his friendly Jordans bower
Interred with Hannah, many years his mate.
While other Penns chose pomp and Poges' vault,
This pilgrim lived and died below the salt.
