Varje år i syréntider kommer jag att tänka på den söta sången "The Lilac Tree", som finns bland min mormors efterlämnade noter.
The Lilac Tree
A little boy and a little girl,
In an ecstacy of bliss,
Said the little boy to the little girl,
"Pray give me just one kiss."
The girl drew back in great surprise,
"You're a stranger sir," said she,
"And I will give you just one kiss
When the apples grow on the lilac tree!"
The boy felt very sad at heart,
She was the only one;
The girl felt quite remorseful
At the terrible wrong she had done.
So bright and early on the very next morn,
He was quite surprised to see
His little sweetheart standing in the garden
Tying apples on the lilac tree.
