Mother's lilac bush was planted
a long time ago, about 1938,
it bloomed every year,
about the same time,
and it survived many ants,
and so many storms,
more than I can contemplate.
The house is long gone,
but not that old bush,
there is still a piece,
in my daughter's yard,
it still blooms,
even when times are good,
and when times are hard.
