What is the difference
between being happy and being sad ?
A mere curve of the lips,
or a wish that could not be had ?
Does a kind word separate them,
or a beating heart ?
Could it be love,
or the mere mention of a treacle tart ?

I’m not sure why I think this, but your lovely poem belongs on the inside of a box of luxury chocolates! Thanks for the smile! :-)
Thanks Girl :) .. Really appreciate it.
Bellezza- The photo is a bit dark but we weren’t allowed to use a flash isnide the museum. Anyway, you still get the idea. I do think it’s a good story to introduce kids to death and sorrow. Literary Feline- I do think the true story is just as worthwhile and her story touched many people in Japan before it ever got told (and embellished) in other languages. Oh well.
