A cherry tree bends by a cinder walk
Attentive for the low sweet talk
Of lovers who used to pause and linger,
While delicate cheek and tapering finger
Lay lovingly against the bloom
Like lighted candles in the gloom.

Turn back your page for an instant, Time,
I would yield to the wish of the tree, and climb
The parapet and gently press
My face against its barrenness.
