NEW HAMPSHIRE LILACS, by            
First Line: The hills are sweet with lilacs now
Last Line: As the evening bell-notes cease.
Subject(s): Flowers; Lilacs; New Hampshire

The hills are sweet with lilacs now,
All freshened by the rain,
And on the distant mountainsides
Love's hues are warm again.
Swift through my heart resurgent sweep
The tides of many Junes,
And life and love are oft renewed
In our cool sweet northern noons.

I see the wine-like shadows fall,
And the hyacinthine glooms,
While the cloud-fleets roll on their silver way
O'er the tossing lilac plumes.
Now the flaming lights of sunset pour
Among the apple fleece,
And through my heart steals love, steals life,
As the evening bell-notes cease.
