Those are words that I love: joy and blossom. Any poem that includes them I find exquisite. If you throw in an orchard too... oh, the joy that blossoms! Beautiful.
Oh, I am overcome with the beauty of this.LiYoung Lee is such a wonderful poet.
Sweet impossible blossom sums it up. There's a school near where I live which has a beautiful old cherry tree outside which has just exploded into blossom. The pupils are moving to a newly built school and have written their memories of the old school on little pink slips of paper and pinned them to the tree. It's some sight.
The world could do with a bit more ecstatic poetry. There is much to celebrate.
