Black-Eyed Susan?

‘O Susan, Susan, lovely dear,
My vows shall ever true remain;
Let me kiss off that falling tear;
We only part to meet again.
Change as ye list, ye winds; my heart shall be
The faithful compass that still points to thee.'
--Sweet William to his Black-Eyed Susan
(John Gay, 1685-1732)

  3. I will plead whatever I think will get results. Not very ethical of me, I admit!
