from The Music Man, by Meredith Wilson There were bells....on the hill,but I never heard them ringingNo, I never heard them at all,Till there was you.There were birds....in the sky,but I never saw them winging,no, I never saw them at allTill there was you.And there was music,and there were wonderful roses,they tell me, in sweet fragrantmeadows of dawn and dew.
There was love, all aroundbut I never heard it singing,no, I never heard it at allTill there was you.Then there was music and wonderful rosesthey tell me, in sweet fragrant meadowsof dawn and dewThere was love all aroundBut I never heard it singingNo, I never heard it at allTill there was youTill there was you
isn't it strange, isn't it interesting, that "we," well, the west anyway, didn't seem to see plum blossoms, or cherry, until they saw japan see plum blossoms and cherry. also interesting, though, is that i rarely see ornamental design being used the same way in both cultures; if it's on pottery in the west, it generally isn't in the east.(top is by toshi yoshida, for dom; ohara koson; eiho hirezaki; royal doulton.)
