The Magnolia Tree

It stands tall in splendor with its glossy green leaves
reaching out to the sun.
Just its mere presence makes you feel so small.
Magnificent in stature long after its birth,
It's trunk remains rooted well to the earth.
Strictly a Southern treasure which is well-recognized,
A heritage shows with every sunrise.
Many frontier tales can sound its power,
while ancestors can remember waiting
