When Lilacs Last in the Dooryard Bloom’d
When lilacs last in the dooryard 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.
Ever-returning spring, trinity sure to me you bring,
Lilac blooming perennial and drooping star in the west,
And thought of him I love.
The lilacs in the back yard are exceptionally pretty this year - maybe the best ever. You cannot help but get a little dreamy, think of poetry and "Ever-returning spring,"
While the lilacs are showing off their finery, over by the garage, almost hidden are the shy, tiny Lily-of-the-Valley flowers.
Now apply that lilac theme to quilting and you have this: Michelle's Kaleidoscope square
"Lilac and star and bird twined with the chant of my soul,"
Happy Spring to all my fellow Bloggers!
