I've always loved the opening lines of that Walt Whitman poem referenced in the title of this Collection. And lilacs. And their color. Lilac is such a gorgeous shade of purple. It reminds me of flowers, springtime, Easter. The items in this Collection are described as lilac, lavender, or some similar hue of light purple, though variations in monitors and cameras can make them look dark purple, fuchsia or pink. Before purchasing, check with the seller to confirm color. Cheers!
