Somewhere near a fence, I think
I'll plant a lilac tree
Where little boys may mount and stretch
In realms of fragrant glee
And gather all the purple stars
Their hungry eyes can see --
That trees within my garden walk
May blossom as they will,
That all their lovely fragrance then
May unmolested spill
Into our open windows and upon our greening lawn
Without a weary watchman
To guard from dusk to dawn!
Such is my thought as now I grope
Through wreckage 'round my door,
Such is my thought -- yes, such my hope --
I'll plant this one tree more.
