A Glimpse of Lilac
A glimpse out the window on a rainy day
and there is lilac.
Can you see it?
Never having had a lilac,
we didn't know.
So that's what this bush was,
that Gladys Taber believed
was loveliest of all.
All shrubbery here having been pruned
for the house to go on the market,
probably at the wrong time of year,
there were only three clusters this April.
I cut one sprig for the house.
And it was enough happiness for one woman.
You might not be able to stand me if I had armfuls.
"There is enough beauty in lilac for a lifetime."
A Bountiful Easter to all of you--
