Along The River Fuji - Poem by Annie Cordelia Adams

along the river fuji
bright, where a mountain
stands before me tall

one hundred people gather
on the other side for qingming
but I lean against a cherry tree

so that I can fall asleep
like I used to in the spring
against broken cattle fences

i would awake at dusk
of the next day-finally rested,
when everything else was asleep

then the wild pink cherry tree
would breath its breath of fragrance
and my world would change

    Really quite breathtakingly precise narrative depth, considering the composer's age.
    Much delightful, delicate imagry, tunefully addressed. Shall keep an eye on Her future ouput.
