MAGNOLIA GAME

It’s that time of year

when blossom sprouts

from barest branch

 
bigger than blossom

substantial as a cup

the waxy magnolia

filters the spring light

we made a game

to spot a tree

scoring a point

for each

and should we

come upon

the one named Stellata

we’d give ourselves a four
