2. a quality that evokes sadness or pity

 USAGE EXAMPLE 2 :
 What is less surprising is to learn that a particularly deadly form of kamikaze aircraft, a piloted rocket that could reach speeds of 880kph, was given the name "Ohka" falling cherry blossom, a name whose poetic pathos and imagery of youthful sacrifice was lost on the US sailors at whom it was aimed.
