April! April! April!
With a mist of green on the trees–
And a scent of the warm brown broken earth
On every wandering breeze;
What, though thou be changeful,
Though thy gold turns to grey again,
There’s a robin out yonder singing,
Singing in the rain.

April! April! April!
‘Tis the Northland hath longed for thee,
She hath gazed toward the South with aching eyes
Full long and patiently.
Come now–tell us, sweeting,
Thou laggard so lovely and late,
Dost know there’s no joy like the joy that comes
When hearts have learned to wait?

little tree


little tree
little silent Christmas tree
you are so little
you are more like a flower

who found you in the green forest
and were you very sorry to come away?
see i will comfort you
because you smell so sweetly

i will kiss your cool bark
and hug you safe and tight
just as your mother would,
only don’t be afraid

look the spangles
that sleep all the year in a dark box
dreaming of being taken out and allowed to shine,
the balls the chains red and gold the fluffy threads,

put up your little arms
and i’ll give them all to you to hold
every finger shall have its ring
and there won’t be a single place dark or unhappy

then when you’re quite dressed
you’ll stand in the window for everyone to see
and how they’ll stare!
oh but you’ll be very proud

and my little sister and i will take hands
and looking up at our beautiful tree
we’ll dance and sing

Tall and Majestic Riddle

Tall and majestic
Green or white
Pretty and dressed up
In tinsel and light

What am I?

Le Conte de la Peincesse Kaguya: La Chanson des enfants

The Tale of Princess Kaguya

By Isao Takahata

Tourne sans fin, moulin à eau, tourne
Passé lointain, m’entends tu ?
Reviens et donne moi mon pauvre cœur perdu

Oiseaux, insectes et bêtes sauvages
Feuillages, herbes, fleurs
Nourrissent la clémence des hommes et leur courage
Si j’apprends que tu m’attends
Je reviendrais sur-le-champ
