A lunar cycle of poems project - night 25
- ~~~Night 25 ( http://stardate.org/nightsky/moon ) ~~~
With so many autumn and winter themed poems already posted ...it seems I have over looked spring themes. The poetry project is nearing an end, I shall now turn toward spring themes, with the hope of winters swift end.
"In the cheerful light
Of the ever-shining Sun,
In the days of spring;
Why, with ceaseless, restless haste
Falls the cherry's new-blown bloom?" -Tomonori (850-905ad)
Haru no hi ni
Hana no chiruran" - Japanese version of the above poem.
