    Magnolia Tease

    Out with the cold; in with the hue
    of spring as green shoots of promise
    take chances to peep out from the
    icy, damp bedroom of winter.

    Glancing in envy at fur coats;
    gathered closely, till golden rays
    embolden the muse to discard;
    leaving wanton florets standing
    defiant without obscuring veil

    This sounds to be a lovely sight! Thank you - as we huddle under covers in subzero temps with snowfall on the ground!

      Thank you, Paula, the fur coats are just outside my window so I get a perfect view of the springtime reveal!

      Thank you, Sister Greed. Glad you enjoyed it - I could have been naughty with the saying from around these parts of "fur coats and no knickers" but I behaved myself lol

        I live in the south where I am delighted to enjoy the beauty of the Magnolia tree year round. The broad shiny green leaves always graceful against the stark barren landscape. Are your magnolias blooming now? What a lovely promise to spring, to arise amidst the bitter cold and sing of an assured future.

        Lovely verse

          Thank you, rhymetime . The buds are just forming here and starting to swell against the bare branches. I love watching it all unfold and have a lovely pot grown Stellata version outside my window. The larger versions look like candles to me when they start to open; you are fortunate to enjoy such a site all year.
