Actually a poem written by a distant relative of mine that I felt should be recorded. Part of his effects; don't even know really who he is.

The Wedding of the Flowers Sweet-William was a bachelor Who lived a lonely life He thought he would go a-courting To hunt himself a wife. So he called on BlackEyed Susan, - I her humble little cot - He whispered, "You are a daisy", She said, Forget Me Not. He kissed her on her tulips, His heart beat faster and faster - Said he, "I'd have her for my wife" And so he up and Aster. "Now when shall we be married?" She blushed a rosy red; *Will June the month of roses do?" "Of course it will", she said. And gladly on that happy day My wedding clothes I'll don, And never in the future Sew my Bachelors' Buttons on. The wedding morn dawned fair and bright The Morning Glories shone Jack-in-the-Pulpit tied the knot; He had his Fox Gloves on. Now they all sat at a banquet At exactly Four-O'Clock: The first course was a soup Made from a four-weeks' stock. Now they hurried to their carriage The rice comes in a shower Away they go as the driver blows A blast on a Trumpet flower. I'll live forever by thy side, And never will I stray. We always will be happy, And drive dull Caraway.
