One of my grandmother’s day;
One that my grandmother tended
Where old-fashioned flowers held sway!
Snowball and flowering almond,
Zinnias gorgeous in dye;
Lilacs scented and purple
Which regal robes outvie.
Great silky blood-red poppies,
Phlox and sweet William galore;
Morning glories and holly hocks lusty
In those happy days of yore.
Blossomed profusely and sweetly
In splendor and showy array,
But most of those old-time beauties
Are not in favor today!
