Lilac


 

Why were you given 
Such a disagreeable name,
Lilac?

Li
No – there is Truth 
In you Fragrance
Lac
No – you possess
Beauty  in abundance

In fact
You’re a bit of Heaven 
Here on Earth

I would brave the sting of
Bumblebees
For a sniff of your blossoms
Yes, the risk 
You are more than worth
