M is the Magnificent Letter for this week.
M is for Magnolia
He told of the Magnolia, spread
High as a cloud, high over head!
Sauntered down the lane to enjoy these marvelous blooms
in the garden at the big house, last April.
We sat on the bench under the big gnarled tree
and discussed the ways of the world and
the beautiful froth of cherry blossoms along the way
and the delicate beauty of the Magnolia.
From Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings....
The Magnolia Tree
"I do not know the irreducible minimum of happiness for any other spirit other than mine own.
It is impossible to be certain even of mine.
Yet I believe that I know my tangible desideratum.
It is a tree-top against a patch of sky.
If I should be crippled or long ill, or should have the quite conceivable misfortune to be clapped in jail
I could survive, I think, given this one token of the physical world."
For more Ms do Move on over to ABC Wednesday and see what
Mrs. Nesbitt and her mighty helpers have to offer. Here.
