MAGNOLIAS
[ Also see Trees ]

Fragrant o'er all the western groves
  The tall magnolia towers unshaded.
      - Maria Brooks, written on seeing Pharamond

Majestic flower! How purely beautiful
  Thou art, as rising from thy bower of green,
    Those dark and glossy leaves so thick and full,
      Thou standest like a high-born forest queen
        Among thy maidens clustering round so fair,--
          I love to watch thy sculptured form unfolding,
            And look into thy depths, to image there
              A fairy cavern, and while thus beholding,
                And while thy breeze floats o'er thee, matchless flower,
                  I breathe the perfume, delicate and strong,
                    That comes like incense from thy petal-bower;
                      My fancy roams those southern woods along,
                        Beneath that glorious tree, where deep among
                          The unsunned leaves thy large while flowercups hung!
      - Christopher Pearce Cranch,
        Poem to the Magnolia Grandiflora
