MARRIAGE OF FLORENCE FISHER AND FRANK SLAWSON
Composed by Miss Beulah Forman, Meridale, NY March 22, 1911
On a dark and stormy Sunday,
When the snow was falling fast,
Florence Fisher & Frank Slawson
Became man and wife at last.
'Twas in the year 1911,
On March, the 19 day,
When they left their home at one o'clock,
And quietly drove away.
Down to the ministers, at Franklin,
With Mary and Homer by their side,
At four o'Clock in the afternoon,
Florence became a happy bride -
The bride was attired
in a dress of light blue,
And Mary the bride's maid
wore a light dress too.
They reached her home at eight o'clock,
And there they spent the night,
On Mon morning they started for school,
With their faces shining bright.
At noon when the children discovered,
That their teacher, Mrs. Slawson had become,
They gave her a little horning,
So she would know married life had begun.
She is boarding at Mr. Shavers
While he is at home on the farm
But on Friday night when school is closed,
He will take his wife in his arm.
And when in June her school is closed,
A little home they will take,
We hope they will be very happy,
And lots of money make.
May peace and plenty crown their joys,
Their arms be filled with girls and boys.
May their children be good and never squall,
And live to old age, both one and all.
