The Lilac is an ancient shrub

The Lilac is an ancient shrub
But ancienter than that
The Firmamental Lilac
Upon the Hill tonight
The Sun subsiding on his Course
Bequeaths this final Plant
To Contemplation not to Touch
The Flower of Occident.
Of one Corolla is the West
The Calyx is the Earth
The Capsules burnished Seeds the Stars
The Scientist of Faith
His research has but just begun
Above his synthesis
The Flora unimpeachable
To Time’s Analysis
“Eye hath not seen” may possibly
Be current with the Blind
But let not Revelation
By theses be detained
