Poem: Amy Lowell, Lilacs

“Lilacs, False Blue, White, Purple, Colour of lilac, Your great puffs of flowers Are everywhere in this my New England … Lilacs in dooryards Holding quiet conversation with an early moon; Lilacs watching a deserted house; … Lilacs, wind-beaten, staggering under a lopsided shock of bloom, You are everywhere.” – Amy Lowell
