An Ode to Washington D.C.’s Cherry Blossoms

Oh, cherry blossoms! How we await your arrival every spring.
If there’s any reason to visit D.C. nowadays, it’s definitely for the sweetness you bring.

Oh so delicate and overwhelmingly lovely.
We enjoy you when we can; if we’re ever so lucky.

A gift from the Japanese many moons ago.
Something so majestic that’ll continue to grow.

Your beauty is fragile, for you only last a few weeks a year.
So FlyGirls admires, sometimes even shedding a tear.

A reminder that life is beautiful, yet tragically short.
That’s why we celebrate you, for you’re the pink beauty we support.
