LILACS
[ Also see Flowers Plants ]

The lilac spread
  Odorous essence.
      - Jean Ingelow, Laurance (pt. III)

Go down to Kew in lilac-time, in lilac-time, in lilac-time;
  Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London).
    And you shall wander hand in hand with love in summer's wonderland;
      Go down to Kew in lilac-time (it isn't far from London).
      - Alfred Noyes, The Barrel Organ

I am thinking of the lilac-trees,
  That shook their purple plumes,
    And when the sash was open,
      Shed fragrance through the room.
      - Mrs. Anna S. Stephens, The Old Apple-Tree

The purple clusters load the lilac-bushes.
      - Mrs. Amelia Ball Welby (nee Coppuck),
        Hopeless Love

When lilacs last in the door-year bloom'd,
  And the great star early droop'd in the western sky in the night,
    I mourn'd--and yet shall mourn with ever-returning spring.
      - Walt Whitman,
        When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom'd
         (I, Leaves of Grass)

With every leaf a miracle . . . and from this bush in the door-yard,
  With delicate-colour'd blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green
    A sprig with its flower, I break.
      - Walt Whitman,
        When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom'd
         (III, Leaves of Grass)
