Oh, Fair To See - Poem by Christina Georgina Rossetti

Oh, fair to see
Blossom-laden cherry tree,
Arrayed in sunny white;
An April day's delight,
Oh, fair to see!
Oh, fair to see
Fruit-laden cherry tree,
With balls of shining red
Decking a leafy head,
Oh, fair to see!

    The poem has a heart-lifting lilt to it and it makes the reader smile in anticipation of seeing cherry blossoms again (Report)Reply
