My Magnolia Tree Is Just Spectacular
In The South Is Where It Originally Grew
So Tall And Sturdy And Proud
I Know You Would Think So Too
Underneath Each Leaf I-‘ve Found
Is Just Like Velvet To Touch
I-‘ve Seen Them In Southern Yards
And I Loved Them So Very Much
Enormous Flowers Decorate The Trees
In An Old-Fashioned Kind Of Way
They Always Make Me Smile
I Wish They Could Forever Stay
I-‘ve Enjoyed Them At Plantations
All Throughout The Southern States
As I-‘ve Traveled -Ë—round The Country
A Lovely Statement They Make
Now One Adorns My Entire Landscape
At Least It Seems So To Me
I Brought It To Washington State
My Magnificent Magnolia Tree
