THE BURDEN OF BEAUTY

 

I walk under the bloom

As branches bend with beauty,

Not all perfection is weightless,

Even the blossom must bare its

Burden upon a branch

    Wonderful poem–and that tree! It is so beautiful, and I can imagine children playing under those branches. But yes, the burden of beauty, in all its forms.

      Thank you Merril! There were lots of kids around as it’s in the jardin des plantes but I managed to push them all out of the way, gently, to take the photo 😊

    Wise and wonderful.
    Perfection is a burden to carry, an impossibility to maintain – yet we all know beauty, however fleeting.
