Sentimental Sunday - Alec Morgan

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.
