Love letters in spring

by cricketjeff on April 29, 2008.  © Jeff Green, All rights reserved

The cherry blossom snow of softest pink
Adds magic to a street in any town
An illustration sketched in pen and ink
As further petals tumble gently down

The springtime grass has disappeared from view
As awkward branches strip away their dress
The sketch you drew shows London fresh and new
While carpeted with such a pretty mess

When all the pink has settled from the trees
The buds of leaves can start to change the scene
The birds will sing of coming summer ease
While magic pink transforms to normal green

On cherry blossom days you wrote to me
To tell me of the world that I should see

Author notes

I love the pink snow!
