Subject(s): Magnolias


I love magnolias in the pale moonlight
With Eden's jewels shining through their bowers,
When fairies wave their starry wands so bright
Amid the pearly fragrance of the flowers;
I love magnolias in the soft moonlight
Casting garlands over gardens fair,
As sweethearts dream, and dream, of bridal white
For candle settings, glimmering and rare.
My soul they touch in quiet loveliness
With beauty of a Southern maiden's face;
With salty kisses from the sea's caress,
With glamor, chivalry, and ebbing grace.
For Carolinians famed they wreathe apart
The haunted glory lying in her heart.
