This is one of my favorite poems. Its in Japanese. I put the translation with the pictures!

Like the bird
Looks up to the sky
the bud gets ready
Like the bird
spreads its wings
leaves grow
Like the bird
prepares to fly
the flower gathers color
like the bird
the flower smells
And then people with language
like the birds, fly
And like the flowers, bloom.

I hate this poem.
So much.
I'm not even going to congratulate you for the completion because of my personal grudge against this poem.
