Subject(s): Gardens & Gardening; Japan; Trees; Japanese


So old, so tiny, it its bowl of blue,
Spreading its green and twisted branches,
While underneath its gnarled and writhing trunk
Gleams a jewel of a stone.
Often visitors to our garden say:
"How strange, how lovely is the tree!"
Yet, is it happy, do you think,
With roots so cramped
And shoots so pinched,
Far, far away from the Land
Of a Million Swords!
