Lilacs may bloom gallantly
Upon a sun-swept hill
But lilacs sold in city streets
Bloom more divinely still.
'Tis lilacs sold in city streets
That set my heart a-thrill.

For lilacs of the countryside
Before my eyes may gleam
In panoply of scudding clouds
And silver-footed stream.
But lilacs sold in city streets
Of such things make me dream.
