ODE TO THE LILAC TREE

by Andrew J. Müller

Hooray! Hooray!
For the lilac tree
Growing all over
Verdant and free.

Colonising the wasteland
We humans create
Bomb sites and sidings
Behind derelict gates.

Brilliant - shining
Purple and white
Can there be
A more magnificent sight?

And the smell!
Nature’s gratis perfumery
So let’s hear a hooray
For the lilac tree.
