With delicate-colour’d blossoms, and heart-shaped leaves of rich green
A sprig with its flower, I break.
When Lilacs Last in the Door-Yard Bloom’d
(III, Leaves of Grass)
That shook their purple plumes,
And when the sash was open,
Shed fragrance through the room.
The promises of the Lord – and lilacs yet to come – are sure!
Thank you – Abby at Little Birdie Blessings – for your sweet vintage lilac postcard images!
