On the old road where all that passed are dead,
Their petals, strewing the grass as for a wedding

    A melancholy poem inspired by the irony of Spring insisting even in a road that has been in disuse for so long that no one alive has used it. Perhaps it says that the fate for each, and perhaps all, of us is to leave our roads to the indifferent cycle of nature. (Report) Reply

    A sad picture which would no doubt be played out in many many small villages under many more cherry trees - and how brilliantly we are led to mourn with this s mall but powerful knell of a piece....... (Report) Reply

The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
