a poem from Patrica's first book of poetry "Reflections of a Mississippi Magnolia: a life in poems" gives a glimpse into the southern way of life.


If you want a glimse of Southern life,

Come close and walk with me;

I'll tell you all the simple things,

That you are sure to see.

You'll see mockingbirds and bumblebees,

Magnolia blossoms and dogwood trees,

Caterpillars on the step,

Wooden porches cleanly swept;

Watermelons on the vine,

Strong majestic Georgia pines;

Rocking chairs and front yard swings,

Junebugs flying on a string;

Turnip greens and hot cornbread,

Coleslaw and barbecue;

fried okra, fried corn, fried green tomatoes,

Fried pies and pickles,too.

There's ice cold tea, that's syrupy sweet,

And cool green grass beneath your feet;

Catfish nipping in the lake,

And fresh young boys on the make.

You'll see all these things

And  much, much more,

In a way of life that I adore.
