In a garden full of cherry blossom,
Far, far away from the city of Gotham,
Peace, harmony and possibly a possum,
Take heed of Mother Nature and park your bottom.
Its petals laid down like a carpet,
Like cellulose confetti fresh from the market,
Pink for friendship, it can spark it,
Kickstart a creative project, it helps you target.
The presence of cherry blossoms is a marvel,
Makes the streets come alive with pink sparkle,
A must see sight, gather allies for the carpool,
Take off your shoes and stretch your metatarsals.
Oh cherry blossom, only a short-lived bloom,
See you next Earth Day, maybe in Khartoum,
Our friendship, we shall resume,
Until then, your memory I shall preserve in perfume.
