5th Grade: Spring Concert Listening

Come and see the cherry blossoms. How their beauty seems to fill the air?

Floating here, and floating there, cherry petals falling everywhere.

Spring has come and days are fair. Won’t you come along with me?

Come and see the cherry bloom. (piano interlude)

Cherry blossoms across the spring sky,
As far as you can see.
Is it a mist, or clouds wafting in the air?
Come now, let’s look and see.
