First Line: Come listen to a pretty story
Last Line: Of our sweet morning glory.
Subject(s): Kisses; Morning; Nature

Come listen to a pretty story;
Its length is not alarming;
'Tis all about our Morning Glory,
So lovely, sweetly charming.
They ope their eyes at early dawning,
As quiet they were sleeping;
And starting in the cool of morning,
They up the vines are creeping.
See how their tints are mildly blending,
From purple deep to whiteness!
The smile, the kiss they now are sending;
They laugh in dewy brightness.
See how they peep to all beholders,
And how their cups are spreading!
Then see them quiet shut their folders!
Some hurt they must be dreading.
They cosey nestle in the shutter;
The tree they now are climbing;
See how their tiny leaflets flutter!
How vain is all our rhyming!
Ah how the all bewitching creatures,
Can thus inspire our story!
What shades are like the rosy features,
Of our sweet Morning Glory.
