Cherry blossom fell like confetti
In the wind, but there was no bride
Or groom only a pair of robins
On the grass beneath the cherry tree.
A winding path led to a church once
Full now empty; redundant in a society
Trying to survive on pay day loans
To pay absent landlords.
The cherry tree had seen a different
Time, a time when the church was full
And people sat beneath it, a time
When the world smiled.
Now the world just turned and groaned
But the cherry tree remained the same
Throughout, each passing year it would
Blossom and cherry blossom would fall
And robins would play beneath it.
This is wonderful, both in style and content
A beautiful poem about the Cherry tree & blossoms and it being a witness to great times and tarnished times! I have also a poem in the same name- The Cherry Tree- but it is about the loss of a much relished tree.!
the cherry tree when in bloom is beautiful. a good write
The Cherry tree symbolises God's unchanging nature, the blossom represents manna from heaven and society represents its own fickle self. The robins symbolises our unchanging natural world.
Beautiful poem..... /Walking together/ /Cherry blossom descending/ / As like confetti! /
The beauty of nature rings loud and clear…
