Cherry blossom in churchyard
Nature obeys bride
My Music Passion for June is for all things Japanese. My number one favourite is Falling Cherry Blossoms, an instrumental played by Verdo Maro Oriental Ensemble. For me, it’s one of those soul-stirring pieces of music that fills you up with positive energy and makes you want to embrace the universe.
This is closely followed by a weird and melancholy composition called Falling Cherry Blossoms, Floating Chrysanthemums by Randall Snyder , which is performed here by a mezzo-soprano and an English narrator, accompanied by bell, violin, harpsichord, and percussion.

Many thanks to Ghia at Jaycee68 for choosing this month’s theme that calls for music that has “Falling” in the title, with no restrictions on genres or decades.
Cherry blossom is one thing and spring-cleaning another:
better to contemplate beauty than pick up the cobweb broom.
Wishing my fellow bloggers a happy and creative Spring 🙂
A Shropshire Lad: Loveliest of Trees
by A.E. Housman
Loveliest of trees, the cherry now
Is hung with bloom along the bough,
And stands about the woodland ride
Wearing white for Eastertide.
Now, of my three-score years and ten,
Twenty will not come again,
And take from seventy springs a score,
It only leaves me fifty more.
And since to look at things in bloom
Fifty springs are little room,
About the woodlands I will go
To see the cherry hung with snow.
