The Bountiful Magazine: (From the Editor). Although I found this love-story enthralling, I was upset by your portrayal of plump ladies as unlovable. I strongly advise all 'bountiful' ladies not to read it!
Have you heard of Doctor Poinsett and his visit to Mexico?
He was American Ambassador in days long, long ago.
He discovered the plant in the wilderness in 1828
And sent cuttings to South Carolina, which was his home state.
At first it wasn't popular, but then improvements were made
And, finally, it was accepted and there was quite a trade
In pots of Poinsettias at Christmas Time, because of the lovely red.
'It looks like the Star of Bethlehem!' all the Christians said.
There's a legend attached to Poinsettias and it is rather pleasant.
A young girl wanted to bring a gift but she was the poorest peasant.
So she took a bunch of weeds to church as a gift for the Holy Child;
Just a handful of grasses that she had found growing wild!
And, as she entered the church that day, the weeds grew flowers of red;
So her gift was no longer paltry, it was beautiful instead!
Poinsettias now grow in Australia, the climate is just right;
And we love to see them at Christmas Time, so bold, so big, so bright.
