 In the heart of Dixie,
 Perfumed by
 The sweet, fragrant smell of magnolias
 and serenaded with
 The melodious songs of the mockingbird,
 Lies a true Queen of the South.
 Her name is Mississippi .
 I don’t know how to explain this place,
 Except to say that she “speaks” to me.
 The rocks, the flowers, the birds and trees
 Speak to me.
 They sometimes whisper,
 And sometimes they shout;
 But always they say,
“This is where you belong.”
