When you come to call one day
Make your wishes clear with a nosegay
Depending on the weekday
There’s so much you could say
In my secret heart I pray
You’ll arrive on love’s day

On Saturn’s day
New bathed, with a Belladonna spray
Good intentions might be gainsaid

On the Sun’s day
With a mistletoe you say
I wanna kiss and cuddle all day

On the Moon’s day
Iris and Lily may
A message of beauty portray

On Mars’s day
Basil good wishes convey
How steadfast you’ll stay

On Mercury’s day
Fragrant lavender portray
The grace of our dancing sway

On Jupiter’s day
Dandelion makes us feel young and gay
Like singing musicals on Broadway

On Venus’s day
If you choose Roses and Hibiscus nosegay
I know the talking bouquet flowers say
I want to love and cherish you to my last living day
