The Bridesmaid.
[From Bayley Lays of a Minstrel.]
The bridal is over, the guests are all gone,
The bride’s only sister sits weeping alone;
The wreath of white roses is torn from her brow,
And the heart of the bridesmaid is desolate now.
With smiles and caresses she decked the fair bride,
And then led her forth with affectionate pride:
She knew that together no more they should dwell,
Yet she smiled when she kissed her and whispered farewell.
She would not embitter a festival day,
No send her sweet sister in sadness away:
She heard the bells ringing, she saw her depart,
She cannot veil longer the grief of her heart.
She thinks of each pleasure, each pain that endears
The gentle companion of happier years:
The wreath of white roses is torn from her brow,
And the heart of the bridesmaid is desolate now.
Savannah Georgian. September 9, 1828.

Things to do when it’s raining:
Do a puzzle, color, finish a crossword puzzle, bake a yummy treat, make a cup of tea, play games, write a letter, drink wine, read a book... Stop by the Davenport House Museum Gift Shop for all you need to make this wet and windy weekend a fun one!

Furniture Friday!
Featuring one of the DH most spectacular artifacts (the photo does not do it justice): c. 1770 Yellow Pine Corner Cabinet. American, possibly Savannah.
Come see it for yourself and wonder about the meals that took place in its presence.
