All the society ladies in the village are in love with two aesthetic poets but the poets are in love with Patience, the village milkmaid, who cares nothing for poetry. The young ladies’ military suitors see no point to aesthetics but give it a try to win their hearts. Things are touch and go for a while but in the end everyone lands a suitable partner, even if it is only a tulip or lily.
