Magnolia

Dear Heaven, I give thanks to thee
for things I did not know before,
For the wisdom of maturity,
For bread, and a roof, and for one thing more...
Thanks because I still can see
The bloom on the white magnolia tree!

From the poem "The White Magnolia Tree" by Helen Deutsch (1906 - 1992) American screenwriter, journalist and songwriter

So gorgeous & fragrant! We have dozens of Magnolias on our block here in Louisiana, It's our State flower. xo
