The Lilac
by Lilly Era

A Lilac blooms by the clearest lake
it sparkles in the sun
A purple so delicate
it looks as if it would shatter like glass at the slightest touch
from this Lilac a whisper seems to come
like the faintest,
quaintest,
angelic hum.
It never ceases,
never stops.
And in the spring mornings,
come the sparkling dewdrops
like nothing in this world the drops reflect
and bend the world around them
but yet, through this dewdrop,
everything blurs
in a magic with remarkable power.
A Lilac blooms by the clearest lake
it sparkles in the sun.
