POEM: I Love You, Kate

I love you, Kate, a bushel and a peck

and a hug around the neck.

I love you, Kate, since we kissed

by the garden gate.

I'll have to ask your dad if we can wed.

If he says yes, we will set the date and

we will kiss twice by the garden gate!

He said yes! So we set the date

and we kissed twice by the garden gate.

He gave you away at a quarter to 8:00.

For our honeymoon we went far away,

and when we got home I carried Kate

through the garden gate.

Now we have children, one, two, three,

and so we closed the garden gate

so they can't run free!
