The spring grove of Tokei-ji

The fresh green leaves of an aged maple tree are sparkling delightedly in the crisp sunlight of May.

The greenness of the leaves is deepening with each passing day and will turn red and yellow at last before their falling in autumn.

This tree is standing still in this quiet grove like an old sage who knows the hidden truth of the changes of the seasons.
