A long time ago
a small chest which looked brilliant, in his opinion,
sat in a corner of a Victorian cottage.
He certainly did look handsome,
but he was a little lonely,
so the consensus was that if he brightened up a bit,
his confidence could be restored.
So, after much primping and poofing,
he became only a shadow
of his former self.
He was happy.
Everybody was happy.
He started planning his big comeback into society...
...then, out of the blue,
from a dusty corner in a dark and dreary little shop,
appeared a sight for sore eyes.
She was older and had many blemishes,
but her dowry was only $15,
and from first glance
he knew they were
a match made in heaven.
after a little primping and poofing
of her own...
The "I do's"
a marriage of convenience...
...and, believe you me,
there were a lot of weeds to pull
before we could do
...and they lived
where is fancy bred,
in the heart
or in the head?"
"The Merchant of Venice"
After the honeymoon,
I hope you will return
to see the happy couple "at home",
in their permanent place of residence.
