Somehow I always know when Spring will come By the fragrance of lilacs in the sun ; Their trembling buds awake beside my fench And bear sweet of blossoms, yet I must wait Until the daylight comes around to warm Each perfumed spray. Not one frostbite must harm These eternal florae of bridal white And rosy pink immortal in delight The diamond leaves are unfurling now To hang delicately on April twigs , And pearly mist that glides on wind's showers Till choirs of red jays, robins start to coo One lustrous melody to worship morn A view of forever I'll also see This holy radiance spring's lilac tree . 3/2/2017 Form-I (Immortal Theme) Contest of Broken Wing

This is beautiful nette! The lilac bush that grew at the home I used to have, were lavender in colour. :) and our jays on the east coast are blue. How wonderful to hear of different varieties! Well done. Big Hugggs. Deb

This was absolutely beautiful Nette. One thing that I always miss about where I used to live are the Lilacs. I loved the scent and they did broadcast the coming of spring. What I have now close is the Mountain Laurel. They bloom purple and their aroma is sweet grape. They too, down here, identify the coming of spring.
