Lilac bloom

Lilac bloom

“Apple orchards, the trees all cover’d with blossoms;
Wheat fields carpeted far and near in vital emerald green;
The eternal, exhaustless freshness of each early morning;
The yellow, golden, transparent haze of warm afternoon sun;
The aspiring lilac bushes with profuse purple or white flowers…”

     — Walt Whitman, “Out of May’s Shows Selected”

  1. Rosemary~ I so love your blog and especially when you add snipetts of poetry. It always inspires me to look up the poet, or if it’s a familiar one- I nod in shared delight.
