My Great Grand Uncle, Alexander Morgan, married miss Lavinia Stuart on the 5th of February 1894 at Pauatahanui, Porirua, Wellington, New Zealand.
He wrote this beautiful wedding poem to her using each letter of her name to begin each line.
|copy of this card written by Alexander Morgan was kindly given to me by his great great grandchildren|
Look down ye angels from above
And guard the darling one I love
Vanish all evil from off her way
Impart heavens blessings day by day
No sorrow cloud that dear sweet face
Imprinted with such holy grace
And open to the world to trace
So innocent and pure is she
That 'tis I pray her life may be
United with all peace and love
And guarded by thee from above
Receiving her when life is o'er
To rest with thee for evermore.
