everywhere, for a moment

"Lilacs in dooryards
Holding quiet conversations with an early moon;
Lilacs watching a deserted house
Settling sideways into the grass of an old road;
Lilacs, wind-beaten, staggering under a lopsided shock of bloom
Above a cellar dug into a hill.
You are everywhere."

-Amy Lowell

They are everywhere, beautiful, delightful, and fragrant. =)
