Magnolias in Bloom
Hello there Magnolia,
It’s good to see you again!
I have been missing your flowers,
And have wondered how you’ve been.
You are the best of both worlds,
Being a flower and a tree.
You’re one of the first to bloom
At least the ones I see.
The great flower of their state
You come in so many different sizes,
Colors and shapes!
You must be tough
To survive being pollinated by beetles
Not sure if that is better
Then worrying about a bee’s stinging needle
I will enjoy you this warm season,
Watch and smell you bloom and grow.
And I’ll be sure to thank Pierre Magnol
Whose name you’re sure to know.
