MAGNOLIA TREE

MAGNOLIA TREE

It seems to be too far north

But our Magnolia has burst forth…

Fragrant flowers

Delight us for hours,

Blossoming next to the side porch.

Nearby is the sidedoor ramp,

And a rail to which shaky hands clamp…

Waiting to go in

The tree lifts a chin,

Though the petals quickly fall when it’s damp!
