Garden of Romance
MAGNOLIA PLANTATION & GARDENS
GARDEN OF ROMANCE POETRY CONTEST

At the Garden of Magnolia
Lauren Koch, Evansville, Ind.

To the Garden of Magnolia, we come every year,
Just James and I,
He'd tell me about the flowers,
And the birds up in the sky,
We dreamed of what we could be,
And if we could fly,
And if I'd just get lucky,
He'd slip his hand into mine,
We stood that way in the sun,
And when it'd start to rain,
Now the Garden of Magnolia,
Has never felt the same.
