Autograph Rhymes Before TV In the 20's and 30's, and before, little girls, and sometimes boys, would have an "Autograph Book" ready for a visitor to pen a rhyme or inspiring saying for their collection. Thus the rhyme: Roses are red, Violets are blue/Honey is sweet/ And so are you.
The visitor may put his own ending, like: If you lived any closer/ I'd come to visit you. Some others:
God bless you from the mountains. God bless you from the sea. God bless you from the footpath That brings you home to me.
======== I wish thee health, I wish thee wealth. I wish thee peace in store. I wish thee heaven after death, What could I wish thee more?
========= When the golden sun is setting And your path on earth you've trod, May your name in gold be written In the autograph of God.
============ Love many/Trust few/Always paddle your own canoe.
=========== When you and George meet by the gate, Maybe love is blind, but the neighbours ain't.
================== Some may pen a hymn verse or Bible verse: Your hope is built on nothing less/ Than Jesus' blood and righteousnes.
============ Usually some silly one's were written also: First comes love/Then comes marriage/ Then comes Suzie with a baby carriage.
============ If all the boys lived across the sea/ Judy, Judy, what a swimmer you'd be. ==========
Little joys in the farmhouse before radio and TV.
