While I could not find the source of the poem, it is possible it came from a children's poetry book of the time. The poem reads:

Sleep on my
sweet one, sleep;
so early gone,
To earth a
child is lost,
To Heaven a
cherub born.

The front reads:
Nellie E.
Child of
Char & Nellie Hogue
[Downward rose]
Died Jan. 17, 1887
5201 N Brighton Blvd (though the actual entrance has been moved to the SE corner on York Street) Denver, CO USA
