Exquisitely poised,
Dainty limbs
Reaching for the sun,
Their myrtle tree
Sways her summer dance.

A patch of emerald lawn
Her stage, the sun itself
As spotlight, she holds
A perfect arabesque
Beneath giant oaks and pines.

Pink blossoms cluster
Before they gently fall
In tribute,
As palmetto palms and fern
Rustle their applause.
