wpid-imag1170.jpgWeep no more my Willow tree
Your tears drop one by one
Your haunting beauty soon to be
Asleep til Winter’s done

Likes notes of a song that linger and stay
Your harmonious hues hang on
Soon on the ground your leaves will lay
Your melody all but gone

A golden pool atop the grass
How pretty yet how sad
Your luscious green is gone alas
Now looking oh so drab

A blue jay flutters on your limb
Causing you to shed
This is a struggle you will not win
The time has come for bed



I watch you weep before mewillow2
Quietly without a sound
Soon dormancy absorbs thee
Your leaves come lilting down

But don’t you fret my Willow dear
It’s time for no more weeping
Although you stand now stark & bare
Your sorrow will soon be sleeping

Rousing once again in Spring
Draped in glorious splendor
Hearing Willow as you sing
Your weeping oh so tender

  5. At first I was a bit skeptical…but the first stanza with its wonderful flowing lines and perfect rhyme…I was completely taken in. Very very nice. well done. And yes, it’s great to read a poem with rhyme and memorable images. Thanks for sharing.

    • Aw, thanks Paul, I’m so happy you liked it! I was so inspired by the tree and it’s leaves dropping one by one I knew I had to write about it. πŸ™‚

  6. Awesome stuff, Deb!
    I felt as one with the tree. And making the reader feel like he’s witnessing the scene is a victory for any writer!
    Congratulations on that!
    What’s coming up next?
    Something to do with the rain??

    Keep rhyming, Deb!!
