    You are warm
    and welcoming
    Wonderful in ways
    that wake up the
    humane inside of us

    To experience your
    earthiness is bliss
    Fortunate is a man kissed
    by your unlimited wisdom

    You extracted the city
    out of me and replaced it
    with that Southern hospitality
    that gradually guides ones
    soul to the simplicities and
    intricacies of life

    You are the fruit of
    hard labor and sacrifice
    As you progress your
    conscience remembers
    the pain and the price paid
    for you to continue the legacy
    of our people and recycle
    your Southern ways

    Grandma's glory and
    Mama's magnificense
    make up your natural might
    Your hereditary womanhood
    prepared you for the fight

    Raised on friend chicken,
    greens and yams
    There is no other woman
    that nurtures and understands
    the man that I am like you can

    Generations of Southern gurls
    have gracefully raised children
    who've triumphed and prevailed
    Your strength is solid and unparalled

    Southern gurl
    Not of the ways of the world
    Georgie peaches and Mississippi pearls
    Home gown, heavanly and helpful
    Polite, nice, and respectful
    Sweet and tender with a soulful inner
    As warm as a Texas September

    I remember walks across
    campus ingesting your subtleness
    and deciphering your Southern twang
    Being introduced to a new way of living
    From you there is so much that I've
    learned and so much that I've gained
    Southern gurl

    wow.......(I'm kinda in between geographically)

    this brings back college memories... I was raised to value
    many of the southern qualities but on a conscious
    level...I like this piece, I'm happy to see someone saw
    the value in a "lady" from the south...

    reminiscent of many I've known, even how I have often been viewed

    thank you for this piece...it was beautiful
