Cherry Blossoms On My Mind

Cool bit of motion blur on the wings too.
Beautiful image. "And since to look at things in bloom, Seventy years is little room, About the woodlands I will go, To see the cherry hung with snow." -
from A E Housman "Loveliest of Trees, the Cherry Now . . ."
It seems that even misquoted Housman is a winner. But when I tried to remember the whole poem, my seventy years didn’t make sense. In his poem we hear how fifty years ahead of you may seem forever, especially when you are twenty, but it means you only have fifty more chances to see the cherries when they bloom. So with apologies to both you and Housman, here is the poem.
