Now you are a very decent flower,
A reticent flower,
A curiously clear-cut, candid flower,
Standing beside clean doorways,
Friendly to a house-cat and a pair of spectacles,
Making poetry out of a bit of moonlight
And a hundred or two sharp blossoms.
—Amy Lowell

One of the things I miss from living in Illinos are the Forsythia bushes and Lilacs.
Your picture is gorgeous.
