A sweet ceremony,

             with cherry stones,
goers gushing
<( , )> grief.

         …In death, even, I
wait for you.
My best pose,
                  ___ repose, ___

The whole time hoping
                 _\ _\ for your knees ;;
Distant cousins,
false lovers bent,

Oh, so sour there,
the pit inward
                < < bursting, > >
^^^ all the growth

Every mourner then
{} {} dined on
               the results —
That fruit of cherry tree,
,,, weeping, weeping. ,,,
