An attempt to write a love ballad.


Sitting under a cherry blossom tree
as petals float past in the gentle wind;
Oh! the night is so cold with none to hear my plea.
My heart can’t be confined, 
When it thinks about My Lord
- The conqueror of the Sun and the Moon,
with whom none dares to have a discord. 
Oh! Messenger of the night sky, go soon
And convey to my Lord, that I await all alone,
Day by day and night by night;
Only to wither away in melancholy, unbeknown 
- For my Lord seems to be out of sight.
"A cherry blossom flower I'd wish to be
To rest upon my Lordship’s feet."
Is what I think whenever I’m under this tree,
For he is my love that makes me complete!

I love the cover you chose, the font, the gentle and elegant way your words and subject float like the cherry blossoms do. Oh I could go on. This poem is so well composed.
