Lilacs

Lilac ladies
you sleep inside your winter buds
of grey branches
that move
with April's gentle wind

wake up your sleepy folk
burst out of your winter beds
for Spring is upon us
and we wait for you in anticipation
to flaunt your fashion frocks

of lavender blue and angel pink
of virgin white and burgundy hue
upon the stage of a forthcoming May
waiting patiently in the wings
to herald a glorious summer..

    A visionary with a delicate taste that edges a social commentary ... I like your view of nature ... O please never lose this magic way of looking and telling. Bravo

    Valerie, spring is around the corner. To me this is the best season of the year. It brings life. Ernilando

    How delightfully you describe the coming of spring's colors. Love the reference "to flaunt your fashion frocks." This poem rocks, Valerie!
