Song of the Flower Stall Vendor


Monday was a slow day for carnations...
Tuesday turned out perfectly for irises.

Wednesday, let's see—
Oh yes, it wasn't meant to be.

Thursday I forgot to get up early;
All of the freshest flowers
Were gone from the growers' market.

Friday was a deep day for bouquets
Of bright red roses.

Saturday and Sunday,
You'll have to ask my cousin Ernie;
He covers weekends for me.
