Moonlight, Magnolias and Jasmine ( lyrical poetry)

Updated on July 1, 2016
Moon, magnolias, and Jasmine
Moon, magnolias, and Jasmine


There's a rising moon above the magnolias, Jasmine scent filtering through the air,

Carried on a Summer breeze, among tall pine trees, sure do wish that I was there.

Special time down in Georgia, precious memories, a southern boy can truly share.

Crickets and frogs chirping, night birds sing, no finer music, can only be as rare.


Refrain:

A guitar plays a Summer serenade, and for every note and chord that is made,

Fireflies blink in time, every good reason, is a rhyme, in moonlit night's parade.


carried on a Summer breeze...
carried on a Summer breeze...


Now a golden moon over the river, old blues giver, seems to cast its magic spell,

Guitar man strumming all he can, singing in the news, chords ringing mighty well.

Wild cat prowls, now stalking, River birds are walking, all along the sandy shore,

Big fish a jumping, grey cranes trumpeting, a hoot owls call seems to ask for more.


A guitar's playing its Summer serenade, for every note and chord that is made,

Fireflies blink in time, every good reason has a rhyme, in a moonlit night parade.


Gold moon rising...
Gold moon rising...


What a pleasure. this Summer night, beneath the sky, so brilliant, so bright,

Old man in the moon, pouring his beams on with a spoon, shinning just right.

A rich melody, casting its sounds with clarity, pleasantly sooths the inner soul,

As this down home pot pouri, being all that it can be, its true beauty to unfold.


A guitar playing its Summer serenade and .for every note and chord that's made,

Fireflies blink in time, every good reason, a rhyme, in this moonlit night parade.

Old man river reflecting moon light...
Old man river reflecting moon light...


This special time down in Georgia land, bringing precious memories all so grand,

Just look and listen, if you've never been there, missing, then you'll understand,

White magnolia blossoms, aromatic bliss, on your face, kiss, in the month of June,

Round orb in the sky, pleases the eye, you can be there, by and by, to be in tune.


Refrain:

A guitar playing its summer serenade, and for every note and chord that's made,

Fireflies blink in time, every good reason, a rhyme, in this moonlit night parade.

My moon light, Magnolias, and Jasmine serenade.

      I love the aroma of jasmine. I could envision you sitting on the bank of the river strumming your guitar. Beautiful!

      Feel as if I were back in my Virginia setting of many years ago...those fireflies always held such magic and mystery for me. Well done....how carefully you have woven the tapestry of time for us to share.

      Angels are once again on the way to you ps

      That river has always been the hub of life in the two states of Georgia and Alabama. In the early days it served as the transporter of raw cotton to cotton mills in the area. The native Americans revered the river and held it as sacred. I understand that the name means painted waters in Creek language. Thank you for stopping by. whonu

      correction: the Chattahoochee means river of painted rock in Creek language In Cherokee it was called Chota. In my language Muddy Waters. whonu

      You have captured the moments beautifully. This would make a fabulous song for the refrains of yesterday, to be brought forth today.

      Very well crafted, whonu. I love magnolias and I love the way you've brought so much of nature into this. You do a great job of setting it all 'in tune'. How lovely it is when nature is in tune with man and the universe!
