Magnolias


A thing of such great beauty a lovely thing to see
The purple flowers that in Spring bloom on the magnolia tree
A memory to live on when other memories fade
Only by Mother Nature such beauty can be made
And Nature's natural beauty is for all to be admired
And by Nature and her beauty poets and artists are inspired
To create their own beauty for others to enjoy
And the poet and the artist is in every girl and boy
But only Mother Nature could have in her the power
To create a thing of beauty such as a purple magnolia flower
In all my days and many walks such beauty i have seen
Like the bluebells by my old home blooming by the pebbly bohreen
But nothing quite so beautiful or so 'twould seem to me
As the purple flowers in Springtime on the green magnolia tree.

Matilda told such Dreadful Lies,
It made one Gasp and Stretch one's Eyes;
Her Aunt, who, from her Earliest Youth,
