Japanese Beauty Admiring Cherry Blossoms

the Japanese beauty of Edo
she sat delicate in the garden;
she observed the cheery blossoms:
the beauty
the stillness
the quite
the blossoms faded almost days after
and the beauty -
O she too followed the way
of the blossoms;
and here I am ages after
and I long for the beauty
impossible to touch
and who sat in the garden

poem based on painting:
'Woman seated under a cherry blossom tree' by Kuniyoshi Utagawa (1797-1861)

Museum teaches history and culture through various kinds of arts...........+++++++++++++
Enjoyed the humour: mundane vs genius.
While he slept. Thanks for sharing this poem with us.
I always new it every piece of art has it's place and function.
This is a cute piece, decently written, but not a great poem in any way, IMHO.
