Five Photos, Five Stories #3

I’ve been invited to take part in the “Five Photos, Five Stories” challenge by Claire of Claire93. The challenge is quite simply to “post a photo each day for five consecutive days and attach a story to the photo. It can be fiction or non-fiction, a poem or a short paragraph and each day nominate another blogger for the challenge”.

Here’s my third photo:

Loveliest of trees, the cherry now

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 threescore 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.

Today I’d like to nominate Sue of Travel Tales of Life to take part in the challenge and do so hope she will accept. Sue has a great zest for life, particularly travelling and can be found posting about all the wonderful places she visits and all the exciting things she does, usually in conjunctions with her husband Dave. Of course there’s absolutely no pressure to join in but her blog is well worth a visit whether she accepts the challenge or not.
