The Weeping Cherry at Maruyama Koen, Kyoto

Artist - Photographer - Glenn C. Hughes

~By Raederle

Hai, dress me sweetly
I fear the cherries will bloom
Hai, death does greet me
My cursed birth gave me doom

Myself as I be
Shining prince, as yet foretold
Naught as I should be
Play the playboy wrapped in gold

Iie, dress me sweetly
Do not flee my bed and leave
Treason unseats me
Cold tears on my drooping sleeve
