Willow Tree by: Sharon Geisen Hayes ©2007

Meet me ’neath the willow tree
at break of dawn I summons thee

Hear now my story never told
of how warm heart turns stony cold

See my breath in morning air
feel pains weight in heavy stare

A love of mine did live this one
committed now to time undone

With trust filled heart, world at her feet
her spirit danced, bright and sweet

Purest of souls to thee no measure
till one tempted with his pleasures

Wooed her with his gift of mind
teased her heart and poured her wine

In his arms her heart did lay
from dark of night till bright of day

When he’d had his greedy fill
he turned away and crushed her will

Her thoughts clung tight, to days no more
of soft warm sand on distant shores

Now story told, such fitting place
weeping willow, fall from grace
