Their display heralds the arrival of spring,
Trees clothed in traditional oriental robes.
Branches bend with the weighty bunches,
Clusters of pink petals pose in hanging pods.
Weary spirits are enriched by your presence,
We wish this cheery blossom to stay for longer.
Delicately made up with dabs of rosy shades,
Iced forms grace a freshly baked wedding cake.
Blooms espy the delight their presence affords,
Hopes renewed by these marvels given by nature.
