It certainly has a knack for trees and such, but it's a bit weak in the traditional pieces.

If I were making an English version of that poem (I don't know Japanese or English well enough to actually translate), the last line would read:

More active yet smoother; more fragile and happenstance.

Fiona, all of your wood chopping and water carrying will not be overshadowed. In one way or another, you will be there. Move positively and everybody will benefit, none-the-less you.
