by Christina Georgina Rossetti (1830 - 1894)

Oh, fair to see
Language: English 
Oh, fair to see
Blossom-laden cherry tree,
  Arrayed in sunny white;
  An April day's delight,
Oh, fair to see!

Oh, fair to see
Fruit-laden cherry tree,
  With balls of shining red
  Decking a leafy head,
Oh, fair to see!
