Lilac Blossoms For You

"Lilac flowers are edible,
just like violas,
 roses, hollyhocks
and daylilies.
Sample lilac flowers
before using them,
as some kinds
 are tastier than others.

Pick the flowers
soon after they open,
wash them,
 let them dry,
then pick off 
the individual florets
to use
 in salads or desserts
or as a garnish on the plate."
