Oscar Wilde

Every May I think of Oscar Wilde. In his book, “De Profundis”, he mentions the scent of Hawthorn trees and Lilacs which he can no longer see or smell and he remembers how much he loved them and his heart aches for all that he has lost. For what?

Oscar mourns the loss

Of light and air and lilacs

Bosie lies abed.
