Trees of mystery? ~ 不思議な木々
Posted by scottshaw on June 15, 2006
Trees don't often remind me of the lyrics of musicals. These did. Click on the photo above and notice the work done on the cedar trees at the right side of the path. Their more fortunate neighbors on the left side of the path are still unshorn. While you're having a look, put on a CD of the musical "Sweeney Todd." These lyrics come to mind while viewing the trees.
Attend the tale of Sweeney Todd
His skin was pale and his eye was odd.
He shaved the faces of gentlemen
Who never thereafter were heard of again.
He trod a path that few have trod,
Did Sweeney Todd,
The demon barber of Fleet Street.
