This spring smells of lilac

Oh, the smell of lilacs

So good it never fails to make anyone fall in love

I once met lilacs in a northern country

I was young then

I was not an exception to be captivated

I couldn’t help bringing a sapling home

And I tried to naturalize it in a pot here

To my excitement It grew and brought out flowers

But to my deep disappointment

For reasons not known to me no smell came out

It has ever since been my cherished dream to go back to that country
