"In future years, when turning to survey
The happy joys of many a well-spent day;
If on these lines you chance to cast your eye,
Recalling scenes of pleasure long gone by
Pause, as you look them o,er and lend
A transient recollection to your friend."

"Joseph S. Potter / Providence August 29th 1843"

The author is probably Joseph Smith Potter, son of Col. Christy Potter. Christy Potter was brother to Hannah's mother, Mary Seager Potter
