The Flanders and Swann song “Misalliance” tells of the love affair between a honeysuckle and a bindweed. “The fragrant honeysuckle spirals clockwise to the sun, And many other creepers do the same. But some climb anti-clockwise, the bindweed does, for one, Or Convolvulus, to give her proper name.” The love affair is doomed, as a passing bee tells them to consider their future offshoots: “Poor little sucker, how will it learn, When it is climbing, which way to turn? Right, left, what a disgrace, Or it may go straight up and fall flat on its face!”
