Even in the midst of this bustling city, the sweet smells of spring in the south abound. Although you do not see any flowers in the photograph of this square…the fragrance nonetheless is still there. Granted that sometimes the paper mill will add its own pungent fragrance to the air, yet still there is the magical mix that can only be Savannah.

The Flowers Of Telfair Square


Soft Southern spring,

sweet nectar of Savannah’s dream.

Moss on oaks of tree lined square.

With essence of a summer to come

enveloping the cool night air.

Squirrels skitter, romp and play

And sun dancing on shadows without names.

On Telfair Square old gray men hobble,

shift and moan as they make their way

across the broken shards of ancient cobblestone.

As to tomorrows future and our reproof,

which steal to the whisper of loves tune.

Oh sweet flowers of Telfair Square,

Oh tender ecstasy of my days without care.

Come now soft breeze, with swaying gray moss in trees,

Come now days without end,

And bring to me my Savannah again.

for She in the gentleness of flight

steals my thoughts this day…this night.

Oh Sweet Flowers Of Telfair Square.

J. Allen...You make me so homesick for Savannah. I thank you for given all of us a look at this grand Lady..Savannah, the Hostess City of the South. Between you and I we are great ambassadors for Savannah. Isn't it charming and a little Europeon? When I get back to Savannah we'll all need to sit out at one of the open cafe's and enjoy a poem or two. I look forward to more of your insight into this homespun taste of the South.

Rufuz loves those smelly flowers, he will be happy to come down and put his own brand of manure on them for ya...such a pungent odor those flowers will give off then...Ed (oh, and of course Rufuz)
