Day 13 A-Z Challenge, M = Magnolia (Quatern)

~::~ Magnolia Dream ~::~

???????????????????????????????????????????

Magnolia! You make me yearn

You blossom wild, in grief I burn

Set ablaze for eternity

My immortal love, come to me

 

In every life, affection spurned

Magnolia! You make me yearn

He came, he left without a trace

Oh, how I crave to see his face!

 

Scorned love, in every existence

Passion decried of its essence

Magnolia! You make me yearn

Time after time in every turn

 

Waiting ‘neath the magnolia tree

For love to set my soul a’free 

I burn with the orange Saturn

Magnolia! You make me yearn!
