Flower a Day for May-Lilac

An excerpt from Lilacs by Amy Lowell:

May is lilac here in New England,
May is a thrush singing “Sun up!” on a tip-top ash tree,
May is white clouds behind pine-trees
Puffed out and marching upon a blue sky.
May is a green as no other,
May is much sun through small leaves,
May is soft earth,
And apple-blossoms,
And windows open to a South Wind.
May is full light wind of lilac
From Canada to Narragansett Bay.

You can read the entire poem at the Poetry Foundation website.

lilac a long ago memory of that beautiful scent mixed with warm spring sun and bees at my grandmas house in Quebec.
