Subject: Lyr Add: THE DANDELION SONG (Linda Allen)^^
From: Croney
Date: 23 May 00 - 03:22 PM

Hi, folks -
Thanks for all the encouraging remarks and the wonderful responses on the Recipe songs and the Mother's Day songs. So now, it being Spring, how about flower songs? Maybe songs that have a flower in the title? White Coral Bells, etc. I wrote one called October Roses that is already in Digital Tradition. Here's another one that my daughters and I wrote about ten years ago. I'm still not exactly clear if the lyrics are coming through correctly--may still need some technical advice--but here it is. This one can be found on Washington Notebook, sung by my then-little girls, Jen and Kristin.
http://www.lindasongs.com
Thanks! Looking forward to what you all come up with.
What an amazing resource you all are!

THE DANDELION SONG
Written by Linda Allen, Kristin and Jennifer Allen-Zito
© Linda Allen 1989

Well, flowers come in green and pink and red
And they sleep all day in their little flower beds
But the little dandelion grows wild and free
With her uncles and her cousins and the whole family
Dandy, dandy, dandy, dandy dandelion
There's something pretty dandy 'bout you
Dandy, dandy, dandy dandy dandelion
I wish that there were more of you
First I make a wish, then I blow real hard
And the little dandelions blow all over the yard
And I wait and I hope for my wish to come true
Guess there's only so much a dandelion can do
CHORUS

Now in 1800 things were bleak and bare
Not a little dandelion anywhere
But Cathy Maynard knew that dandelions cure
So she brought them to Washington, and we thank her
CHORUS

Some people think that dandelions are a pest
But I think that dandelions are the best
Dandelions, don't you know, are really cool
And dandelion haters should go back to school
CHORUS

You can make them into necklaces and bracelets too
You can decorate your laces to tie your shoe
You can make them into salad greens or dandelion tea
That's why dandelions are for me
CHORUS 2X

Notes:
My daughters, Jennifer and Kristin (then ages 12 and 9), rode with me to a concert in Everett. On the way there, I told them about Catherine Maynard's alleged contribution to Washington's history. We created this song together over the next hour in the car, and sang it together at the concert.

One of my all-time favorites is "Seven Dafodils" which is in the DT. There is something very romantic about it. I finally got around to learning to play it this year and love to sing it.

"But I can show you morning upon a thousand hills,
And kiss you and give you seven dafodils..."

It has been my habit each spring for many years to give dafodils to the significant other in my life. I think this song has something to do with that tradition.

Nice song! I love flowers and would love to hear of other traditional/folk songs about them.

My own thoughts, off the top of my head:

Red is the Rose
Lily of the West (not really about flowers!)
Blackberry Blossom
Green Grow the Lilacs
Apple Blossom Time
Texas Bluebonnets

From: Bert

When My Great Grandmother was six years old she appeared on stage with a huge basket of flowers and sang this song.
    I am a little flower girl and here I take my stand
    I'll sell you any kind of flowers I have within my hand.
    I've violets and I've roses to make you pretty posies
    lilies white and marigolds and orange blossom too
    I've lilacs for the ladies, buttercups and daisies
    and if you want to buy some flowers
    I hope you'll buy from me.

    I've violets and I've roses to make you pretty posies
    lilies white and marigolds and orange blossom too
    I've lilacs for the ladies, buttercups and daisies
    and if you will not buy my flowers
    I'll throw them all away.

She finished by throwing handfuls of flowers out into the audience.

Bert.

You can put the name of specific flowers in SuperSearch and come up with zillions of hits.

I like "The Bluebells of Scotland" which I used to think referred to flowers, but a recent discussion here makes that assumption questionable.

My Wild Irish Rose
Paper Roses
The Rose
etc.
Wild Mountain Thyme
The Heather on the Hill (from Brigadoon)
The Flower Song (from Bizet's Carmen)
The Flower Duet (from Pucinni's Madama Butterfly)

Wildwood Flower,
Mother Maybelle Carter.

The Dransfield brothers recorded a lovely flower song. Man loves woman, woman rejects man, man dies of grief, who would have imagined?
The last verse goes;
Dig me my grave, dig it long wide and deep
And let me lie down there and take a long sleep
And that's the best way to forget her.

There's a nice song by David Laing called My Flowers that is all about flowers, comparing flowers to beautiful women rather than the other way around. I could get the words off of the album...

This was originally titled "The Flower Song"

SWEET ADELINE
Words, Richard H. Gerard. Music, Harry Armstrong.
New York: M. Witmark & Sons, © 1903.

In the evening when I sit alone a-dreaming
Of days gone by, love, to me so dear,
There's a picture that in fancy oft' appearing,
Brings back the time, love, when you were near.

It is then I wonder where you are, my darling,
And if your heart to me is still the same.
For the sighing wind and nightingale a-singing
Are breathing only your own sweet name.

    CHORUS
    Sweet Adeline, (My Adeline,)
    My Adeline, (My Adeline,)
    At night, dear heart, (At night, dear heart,)
    For you I pine. (For you I pine.)

    In all my dreams, (In all my dreams,)
    Your fair face beams. (Your fair face beams.)
    You're the flower of my heart,
    Sweet Adeline. (My Adeline.)

I can see your smiling face as when we wandered
Down by the brookside, just you and I,
And it seems so real at times 'til I awaken,
To find all vanished, a dream gone by.

If we must meet sometime in after years, my darling,
I trust that I will find your love still mine,
Tho' my heart is sad and clouds above are hov'ring
The sun again, love, for me would shine.

    CHORUS

Lead (Harmony)

The Dransfield song (I have that record!) is called A Week Before Easter; they got it from the singing of the Copper Family (at the time Bob and Ron).
Matticus, I know that last verse slightly differently as
    Go dig me a grave, dig it long wide and deep
    Aye, and cover it over with flowers so sweet
    That I may lie down there and take a long sleep
    And that's the best way to forget her

Matticus, send me a private message (at home) if you want it; I THINK I now have a working record player (of vinyl) after some years when I didn't; it depends on whether there is a stylus or a chisel at the end of the tone arm. (not quite a joke) if the former, I can make a copy for you on cassette & send the same.

The Posie by Robert Burns.

THE POSIE
(Robert Burns)

O, luve will venture in where it daur na weel be seen!
O, luve will venture in, where wisdom ance hath been!
But I will doun yon river rove amang the wood sae green,
And a' to pu a posie to my ain dear May!

The primrose I will pu, the firstling o the year,
And I will pu the pink, the emblem o my dear,
For she's the pink o womankind, and blooms without a peer-
And a' to be a posie to my ain dear May!

I'll pu the budding rose, when Phoebus peeps in view,
For it's like a baumy kiss o her sweet, bonie mou.
The hyacinth's for constancy wi its unchanging blue-
And a'to be a posie to my ain dear May!

The lily it is pure, and the lily it is fair,
And in her lovely bosom I'll place the lily there.
The daisy's for simplicity an unaffected air-
And a'to be a posie to my ain dear May!

The hawthorn I will pu, wi its locks o siller gray,
Where, like an aged man, it stands at break o day;
But the songster's nest within the bush I winna tak away-
And a'to be a posie to my ain dear May!

The woodbine I will pu, when the e'ening star is near,
And thc diamond draps o dew shall be her een sae clear!
The violet's for modesty, which weel she fa's to wear-
And a'to be a posie to my ain dear May!

I'II tie the posie round wi'the silken band o luve,
And I'll place it in her breast, and I'll swear by a'above,
That to my latest breath o life the band shall ne'er remove
And this will be a posie to my ain dear May!

A bit of useless information:

(PAN-zee)

A colorful flower with velvety blossoms

This flower's name derives from the French word "pensee" (with an accent over the first "e"), meaning "thought." It's so named for the way the blossoms of some varieties resemble a little face crinkled up in thought. (Thus "pansy" is a relative of such words as "pensive" and "ponder.")

(Interestingly, the German word for this flower is "Stiefmutterchen." While speakers of French see a thoughtful frown in this blossom, Germans see the unforgiving scowl of a "little stepmother.")

very accurate translation by me (whoopee)

Oh Lord up above, who makes the rose and daisy
Please find a husband for each of these young ladies.
(chorus)
And Mary ann goes to the country today when the swun goes down.
But who knows, who knows when she'll come back to town.

II
Oh pretty is the rose, but prettier the violet's hue
Be sure that when you marry it's a country girl for you

III
Come all you young fellows who love every girl you see
Take all the blondes, leave the dark haired ones for me.

Iv
But Brunette or blonde pay heed to what I say
Someday some young girl will steal your heart away

THE MAID OF NEWFOUNDLAND

"...The wild rose on its native tarn spreads fragrance o'er the gale;
The modest lily sweetly shines in every silent vale.
The violet on its liquid bed do silently expand;
But I know a flow'r exceeds them all which dwells in Newfoundland.

The daisy decks the sleeping green; the primrose loves the shade;
The bluebell hangs its drooping head in many a silent vale.
A modest emblem of herself that sweet and fragrant band
I shall repine till thou art mine, Dear Maid of Newfoundland...."

'There are so many colors in the rainbow
So many colors in the morning sun
So many colors in the flower

Subject: Lyr Add: WILDWOOD WEED (Jim Stafford)
From: beadie
Date: 18 Feb 02 - 03:24 PM

I fondly remember "Daisy a Day," by Jud Strunk. The young man who, by way of "Laugh In" in the late sixties, gained some measure of well-deserved fame. He's still the only musician I ever saw play a bluegrass festival with a trombone in his band.

As well, the old traditional "Wildwood Flower" remains a favorite, along with its somewhat addled derivative, "The Wildwood Weed" by Jim Stafford. Its not, strictly speaking, a reworking of the Carter Family classic, but rather a talking blues sort of thing with the original as the background theme.

WILDWOOD WEED
(Jim Stafford)

[C] The wildwood flower grew [Am] wild on the farm and we [G] never knowed what it was [G] called.
Some said it was flower. [Am] Some said it was a weed. [G] I didn't give it much [C] thought.
One day I was out there [C7] talking to my brother, and I reached down for a weed to chew on,
And things got fuzzy and things got blurry and then everything was gone.
(I didn't know what happened, but I knew it beat the hell out of sniffin' burlap.)

I came to and my brother was there and he said, "Boy, what's wrong with your eyes?"
I said, "I don't know. I was chewing on a weed." He said, "Let me give it a try."
We spent the rest of that day and most of that night trying to find my brother Bill.
Caught up with him about six o'clock the next morning, naked sitting on the windmill.
(Said he flew up there. I had to climb up and get him down. He was about half crazy.)

The very next day we picked a bunch of them weeds and put em in the sun to dry,
Then we mashed 'em up and cleaned 'em up, and put 'em in a corncob pipe.
Smoking them wildwood flowers got to be a habit and we never seen no harm.
We thought it was kind of handy: take a trip and never leave the farm.
(Take a big old puff of that wildwood weed, next thing you know, you're wanderin' around behind the little animals.)

All good things got to come to an end. It's the same with our wildwood weeds.
One day this feller from Washington came by and spied 'em, and turned white as a sheet.
Well, they dug and burned and they burned and dug and they killed all of our cute little weeds.
Then they drove away. We just smiled and waved, sittin' there on that sack of seeds.

Y'all come back now, ya hear!

Rosalee Sorrells has a great one about her grandmother's gardens. though they both had different styles of garden- ing, one more random, the other quite orderly, they both grew Bells of Ireland. The chorus goes: These are the Bells Of Ireland That in my garden grow My great grandmother brought those seeds From Ireland long ago Their music it is sweet and sad Like orphan angels sing If you listen in your heart you'll hear Those Bells OF Ireland ring.....

I always like to sing it with White Coral Bells.... oh don't you wish that you could hear them ring? that will only happen whent the fairies sing..

also Kate Wolf has a beautiful tune she did Acapella about the Lilac Bush and the Apple tree... Greg Brown also does a tune for Ani DeFranco called Vivid in which she brings him flowers

and what about Malvina Reynolds one (seems to be based on a Ferlenghetti poem?) about the sunflower growing thru the cracks in the sidewalk--- and then there is Rosalee Sorrells who does a tune directly from Ferlinghetti-la Bruja, flower of the revolution...she has both that one and another on her borderline heart album: Ken Kesey's Ragweed Ruth... and someone MUST have written a line or two' featuring that famous photo form (was it?) Kent State where the anti-war protester slid daisies down the barrel of the national guard soldier.... laurie Lewis also has one: When the Cactus is in Bloom. and has no one yet mentioned Dolly Parton's Wildflower.

Great song, Croney! And a great story about it's creation.

Dandelions are my all time favorite flowers -- I think of them as my role models. Several years ago, I came up with this:

Dandilions' Guide to Happiness

1) Grow wherever your seeds may land.
2) Send your roots deep, and don't let anyone pull you up or mow you down.
3) Never block anyone else's sunshine, but don't let anyone else block your sunshine, either.
4) Be of service to others, but keep something for yourself.
5) Give people the oportunity to dream, and let their wishes carry your seeds to wherever they may land.

Notes:
1) When dandelion seed gets into the straw used to make bricks, dandelions have been known to grow out of the sides of buildings!
2)Dandelion roots can grow two feet deep. 3) Dandelions will always grow to the height of the plants around it, then bloom. 4) Every part of the dandelion is edible -- except the stem.

Oh-oh! I almost forgot my all-time favorite flower song. The one referred to in the above blue clicky--Carter family was credited with this, but I believe they stole it from a Cornish or Welsh miner.

GIVE ME THE ROSES WHILE I LIVE
------------------------------
Heard on A Prairie Home Companion
Performed by Greg Brown and Kate Mackenzie
Done by the Carter Family
Written by a Welsh Miner
   D                                    A
Wonderful things of folks are said, when they have passed away.
D A
Flowers adorn the narrow bed, and over the sleeping lay.

CHORUS:
G D E A A7
Give me the roses while I live, trying to cheer me on,
D A D
Useless the flowers that you give, after the soul is gone.

D A
Folks are forgiven when folks lie, cold in the narrow bed.
D A
Let us forgive them ere they die, now should the words be said.

CHORUS

D A
Praises are heard not by the dead, roses they cannot see.
D A
Let us not wait till souls have fled, tenderest friends to be.
CHORUS, REPEAT CHORUS

ADDITIONAL VERSE:

Let us not wait to do good deeds, till they have passed away.
Now is the time to sow good seeds, while here on earth we stay.

OTHER ADD'L VERSE:

Give me the roses while I live. Don't wait until I die
To spread the roses o'er my grave, to see as you pass it by.

I was interested to see Allan C.s mention (early in this thread)of "Seven Golden Daffodils" and that it was in the DT.
This was one of my faves back in the early 60's when it was put out by a group called The Cherokees (who were???) on Columbia - the record (I still have my 45!!!) attributes it to Mosely-Hayes, but I guess that could just be the group's arrangement.
What is the origin/history of this song - is it old/traddy??? How much does the tune of the DT version differ from the pop charts one, I wonder?? Can anyone help?

From: George Papavgeris
Date: 13 Nov 03 - 07:15 PM

Not what you had in mind, I bet, but...

Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?
Dried up and pressed inside a frame, they never get a second glance.
The love that we would banish war with, on bombed out streets now naked stands.
Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?

Where is the innocence of youth, the stars that once were in our eyes
When did we learn to cover truth with our excuses and our lies?
When did our ideals falter? Tell me, when did we change our plans?
Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?

Our lives from others we have learned to separate
From evil we avert our eyes.
More often war it is, and not love that we make
And all the time we compromise.

We used to turn the other cheek, but now we turn our face away.
We were the blessed and the meek; our future brighter than the day.
But we've forgotten Luther's message; we never ask ourselves, not once:
Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?

But we've arrived, and as we pat each other's backs
Our principles we now betray
And year on year as we progress and we advance,
It's not just hair that's turning grey...

Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?
Where are the lessons we would pass on to our daughters and our sons?
And did we ever make a difference? and did we ever stand a chance?
Where are the flowers that we put into the muzzles of the guns?

O giovanotto se vuoi fare all'amore
Lascia le bionde e piglia quelle more.

Chatting with a flower

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch

Boo hoo, boo hoo

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch,
oh won't you come and play with me

Who put me in this bed?
I'll bet his face is red
I call him down with every teardrop that I shed
If I only had him here
I'd take him by the ear
And make him share my misery

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch,

I'm a lonely little petunia in an onion patch

and all I do is cry all day

Boo hoo, boo hoo

"Ah, May the Red Rose Live Alway" by Stephen Foster. Also refers to daisies and primroses.

Flowers in songs remind me of these lines in "Charming Molly":
"In her eyes, these things are seen:
Violets, roses, lilies, and daffadown-dillies..."

I always cringe when singing that last part--what self-respecting guy would ever dream of saying "daffadown-dillies", even if hopelessly besotted or drunk on his patootie? But the rest of the song is too good to pass up. Some day I'll sit down with some gardening books and find a more reasonable substitute. (Side note: A girl with such unusually kaleidescopic eyes and black lips probably needs the ministrations of a doctor.)

Stretching the topic to the most tenuous flower associations, there's "Lavender Cowboy". :-}

Blodau'r flwyddyn (Flowers of the year)

My love is like the flowers of the whole year,
April, May, June also,
The sun's radiance shining upon shadow
And, of all girls, the fairest wheat.

Beautiful is the smile of the rising sun
With its embrace of light,
Beautiful are the smiles of the moonlight
More beautiful is the cheek of my love.

Slender and stately as the birch tree
Her face is as pretty as the beautiful clover
Her dawning is like a summer's morning,
It is she who is the subject of praise throughout the nations.

This has a drop-dead-gorgeous tune too.

Couple of notes: the tune was first published in 1845 with different words. This is an example of 'canu penillion, dull y De' or 'versifying in the southern manner', i.e. taking a tune and thinking of a variety of 'floating' folk verses that you can link together. Someone else might sing a whole different set to this tune (a member of the 'Y Dôn Fechan' family) but these days the above are generally associated with it.

I don't know if these references to wildflowers are part of the bardic tradition of referring to an out-of-wedlock child as a 'Flower of May' or not. I'm currently doing a trawl of these folk verses and it seems that there are very few references to garden flowers (I've gone through about 400 of a collection of 700 verses); instead the Welsh go for wildflowers or crops - like wheat.

Another Welsh one: Blodam Drain (The Flower of the Thorn) - no idea what the words are, though.

The cornkister "The Buchan Gairdner" (or Gardener) has the most improbable flower names you will ever find in a song. Like pelargoniums.

Mudcat's own Seamus Kennedy has a very good album on which every song is about roses. It appears to be out of print, but I'm sure he would work with any interested party to get a copy.

Australia's John Williamson has a nice song called "Purple Roses."

I love Lily of the West! And if that one counts, so does this one ... I don't know the title. It was just a round we sang at drama camp. The lyrics are:

"Rose, Rose, Rose, Rose
When will I see thee wed?

I will marry at thy will, sire,
at thy will."



And since other people were bringing up rock and roll, I'll include "Where The Wild Roses Grow" by Nick Cave and The Bad Seeds, featuring Kylie Minogue. Spooky. :)

Does anyone know of a song that in it's native language is called "hitori"? It's of japanese descent but i can't find it. I tried to google some of the translated phrases i rememberbut only this came up. Here are some of the phrases: "there by the river sits a pretty maiden watching the water move along each gentle breeze that sighs through the cherry trees echos a song that fills her heart. Someday i will go to my home that i love so, once more i will be 'neath the cherry tree, (this isn't the exact spell but i will do my best) hitori de sabi-she furotori de ma-ei rema-sho, Now as the moon light dances on the river sadly the maiden must depart. That's all i remember but i really want to find it. Can anyone help me?

One of my favourite songs had a one-line mention waaaay back. For what it's worth, here's a bit more info.

Roses From The Wrong Man    (Christine Lavin)

She opens the door, surprised to see the delivery man
Standing there, flowers in his hand
For me?, she said. He nods his head
She takes the flowers in and she's read the note

Roses from the wrong man
Poetry written in the wrong hand
She waits for one, she hears from another
Who tells her how much he loves her
With roses from the wrong man

She puts the flowers in the middle of the living-room
And the air is filled with delicate perfume
She takes a deep breath, closes her eyes
Slowly shakes her head and sighs
Roses from the wrong man

Roses from the wrong man
Poetry written in the wrong hand
She waits for one, hears from another
Who tells her how much he loves her
With roses from the wrong man

How long can she hold on for someone who might never come around
How many times will the other man try if she keeps turning him down
And she's not getting any younger, she doesn't want to settle for less
How can such pretty flowers bring so much unhappiness

Since she was a child of eleven or twelve she had had this dream
To receive the kind of flowers carried by a beauty queen
Sometimes dreams can come true
In ways you don't want them to
Like roses from the wrong man

Roses from the wrong man
Poetry written in the wrong hand
She waits for one, hears from another
Who tells her how much he loves her
With roses from the wrong man

(as sung by Iain MacKintosh)


[2000:] There isn't a woman in the audience who can't relate to the bittersweet eternal triangle which Iain's voice sets out with such stark emotion. 'Roses' is an object lesson in songwriting; a story pared down to one event and a few thoughts and dreams, a lifetime offered up by implication. (Notes Iain MacKintosh & Brian McNeill, 'Live and Kicking')

A song from the mid 30s in school. Think the name was Bendameer's Stream. Some of the words were " Will you come to the bower I have shaded for you? I have decked it with roses, all sparkled with dew. Will you, will you, will you, will you come to my bower?" and "There's a bower of roses on Bendameer's stream and I go there to be with my dear Bendameer"

This is the lyric to "Hitori" I'm guessing on the spelling of the Jap.

Hitori de sabishii, futari de ma ii ri mashou
Hitori de sabishii, futari de ma ii ri mashou

Down by the river, sits a pretty maiden
Watching the water move along
She sees a lovely blossoming cherry tree
And her heart is filled with song.

Someday I will go, to my home that I love so.
Once more, I will be. 'neith the lovely cherry tree.

Hitori de sabishii, futari, de ma ii ri mashou

Now as the moonlight dances on the river,
Sadly the maiden must depart
Each gentle breeze that sighs through the cherry trees
Echos the song that fills her heart

Someday I will go, to my home that I love so.
Once more, I will be. 'neith the lovely cherry tree.

Hitori de sabishii, futari, de ma ii ri mashou
Hitori de sabishii, futari, de ma ii ri mashou

(^ this line translates into "Here am I, so all alone, dreaming of the cherry trees of home" and can be put into the song in place of the Jap. The translation comes from my sheetmusic from 5 yrs ago.)

I sang Hitori in middle school, and I remember the translation under the Japanese lyrics... it's an artistic liberty, certainly, because the Japanese text speaks nothing of cherry blossoms. It roughly says "By myself, I'm so lonely; let's come together, the two of us."

Here is the Japanese song about which you speak (and, no cherry blossoms specifically mentioned). Maybe there are two different songs? Although the first couplet is exactly the same as in the one with English inserted...

This hauntingly beautiful melody comes from the Sendai area in Tohoko district and can be classified as a tedama (ball juggling) and counting song.

Hitori de sabishii (Alone and Sad)

"Hitori de sabishii,
futari de mairi ma sho.

Miwatasu kagiri,
yomena ni tanpo.

Imôto no sukina
murasaki sumire.

Nanohana saita
yasashii chôchô.

Kokonotsu komeya
tô made maneku."

Literal translation:
"I feel lonely all by myself.
Shall we two go together?
As far as the eye can see there is grass and dandelion.
We can also see the violets my younger sister loves.
The flowers bloom and beautiful butterflies flutter about.
The rice shop welcomes us."

From "Folk Songs of Japanese Children", compiled and annotated by Donald Paul Berger, Charles E. Tuttle Company, Rutland, Vermont & Tokyo, Japan, 1969.

"It Must Have Been the Roses" -- was that on a Grateful Dead album 'way back, or a Jerry Garcia solo recording?

Goes something like:
Annie laid her head down in the roses.
She had ribbons, ribbons, ribbons in her long brown hair.
I don't know, maybe it was the roses.
All I know is I could not leave her there.

Chorus:
I don't know, it must have been the roses.
The the roses or the ribbons in her long brown hair.
I don't know, it must have been the roses.
All I know is I could not leave her there.

followed by a verse about 10 years of ships rolling something back from somewhere and other typical Garcia/Dead cryptic or poetic stuff, I guess it depends on one's point of view)

------------

I was delighted to see "You Wore a Tulip (and I Wore a Red, Red Rose)" mentioned earlier in this thread. I sang it with a barbershop chorus and it was great fun with a tempo acceleration to emphasize its basic plot of going from just seeing one another to the excitement of new love.

Beautiful Bouquet


      

For pleasure I went walking out through the fields one day
I started gathering flowers to make a sweet bouquet
Each flower that I gathered. each one played a part
Each flower stood for someone held dear to my heart

   Beautiful bouquet I'm gathering today
   Picking the colours that'll never fade away
   Each flower has a meaning so dear to me
   Each flower is a treasure chestof sweet memories

Violets for my sweetheart, a white rose for my dad
A red rose stood for mother, the best friend that I had
Forget-me-nots stood faithfully for tried true friends of mine
Daisies for the puppy loves that I left far behind

Lilies are for grandma, who watches from afar
Poppies are for brother, who lost his life at war
I put them all together, tomake a sweet bouquet
A rainbow full of colours that will never fade away
