Here is a beautiful poem by Russell Holder

The Old Willow
My Uncle had a tree such as this
but the old willow shall not weep…
it is by her wisdom she’ll bend
and not break, a death to sleep…
and she has learned this more than
most other trees the wind has tried,
for this very reason, to be able to bend
as the wind assaulted her, she has not died,
young breezes, old winds… she has
braved them all and all to stoic rest…
she has known many trees in stand, at hand,
and to know to bend was found the best.
