sakura Originally uploaded by kenic.
sakura is still in bloom. Last two days, it had rained, so i was afraid that sakura would be finished. (It happens often that raining makes ending it). But it's still ok. Sakura trees are really beautiful on this season. after blooming finished, new leafs come out, it's also beautiful.

SPRING - G.M. Hopkins

Nothing is so beautiful as Spring --
When weeds in wheels, shoot long and lovely and lush;
Thrush's eggs look little low heavens, and thrush
Through the echoing timber does so rinse and wring
The ear, it strikes like lightnings to hear him sing;
The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness; the racing lambs too have fair their fling.

What is all this juice and all this joy?
A strain of the earth's sweet being in the beginning
In Eden garden. -- Have, get, before it cloy,
Before it cloud, Christ, lord and sour with sinning,
Innocent mind and Mayday in girl and boy,
Most, O maid's child, thy choice and worthy the winning.
