THE WEDDING OF THE LILY AND THE ROSE From the show "Aunt Bridget's Baby" (1892) (W. Andrew Mack / Thomas Le Mack) While strolling through a garden on a lovely summer's eve The evening shadows were about to fall The dew had kissed the flowers and the air lulled them to sleep While night's dark mantle hovered over all Seated on a bench, and meditating there alone My eyes grew dim, I soon fell in a doze I dreamt there was a wedding 'midst the flowers rich and rare The bride the Lily and the groom the Rose The Tulip kissed the Violet, the Daffodil the Pink The Lilies bowed their heads in sweet repose The pretty Morning Glory told the Hyacinth the story Of the weeding of the Lily and the Rose I soon awoke from slumber in fair flowers sweet domain Like virgin buds my eyes began to ope Fanned by the gentle zephyrs with Aeolian music sweet The Roses whispered to the Lilies hope The flowers soon began to drop their heads and fall asleep Rocked by the gentle perfumed-laden breeze The goddess of the flowers came and waved her magic wand And then I heard this whispered through the trees The Tulip kissed the Violet, the Daffodil the Pink The Lilies bowed their heads in sweet repose The pretty Morning Glory told the Hyacinth the story Of the weeding of the Lily and the Rose (Contributed by Mel - September 2007)
