Atholl House Revisited

In the papers an ad appears

offering a generous parcel of land
at no cost to organization to set up
a hospital for the vulnerable.
The only stipulation is lilacs should
take up half of property. Lilacs are to be
be planted and maintained throughout
life of property.

Centuries pass and the parcel of land is
accepted by unknowns.
They build a large facility and establish the lilacs.
It is located in the countryside,
shrouded in mist. Lilac trees grow wild and untamed.
Floral nectar runs like sweat down the trunks.
Buds drown in the saccharine air.
