The glassy peartree leaves and blooms, they brush
The descending blue; that blue is all in a rush
With richness . . .

Shouldering its way and shedding the earth crumbs.

Full of fresh scents
Are the budding boughs
Arching high over
A cool green house.

Loveliest of trees the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
