They had passed the edge of never
when she smiled at him one day
and the gulf that was between them
seemed to suddenly go away.
Theirs was a love that never
could have happened in those days
when the help didn't mix with gentry
it just wasn't the southern way.
But, some things just seem to happen!
Some things are meant to be!
Cupid's little arrows
change things that couldn't be.
Thus the genteel lady
was smitten by the charm
of the handsome groom and horseman
who tended her daddy's farm.
And thus a chapter was written
as the Sun set in the west,
a Southern rule was broken
and it was but for the best.
They loved each other dearly
it was plain for all to see
they had broken a tired tradition
for all eternity.
