      ~~~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)

      "Hisakata no
      Hikari nodokeki
      Haru no hi ni
      Shizu-kokoro naku
      Hana no chiruran" - Japanese version of the above poem.
