if only I could stop
the wind

A w ogrodzie teraz właśnie wiśnia kwitnie.

My first thought was...but then there would be no cherry blossom snow in spring.

All the same... a timeless and lovely image. I like the line breaks as well; each achieves its own importance individually as well as in concert with the poem.

Beautifully done.

Excellent. Though the blossoms drifting in the wind is also nice.
