Lilacs in Bloom
by Debra Milligan
Lilacs in Bloom presents 16 poems by Debra Milligan. This second cycle of a trilogy of spring poetry celebrates this herald of spring: the heart-shaped lilac in bloom. Love is in the air for the fortnight during which lilacs bloom. Themes include the many sensations of love; the pain of heartache; the glorious renewal of life through yearning, through forgiveness, through any new beginning.
