(Wikipedia.  Yamabuki – also known as Kerria japonica)


The yamabuki

is blooming so profusely

that it seems tactless:

you wouldn’t call it subtle.


to say the least, is its show.

No Murasaki

to enjoy the Spring flowers…

It is inconceivable!

And she had been so refined;

she had always been

one for utmost decorum,

so how can this tree

be quite so insensitive,

as to rejoice when we grieve?
