THE WEEPING WILLOW

the willow stands tall and its roots hold tight
as if guarding the land through day and night

it reaches out holding back the pain of its years
the things it has seen would explan all its tears

it looks to have lived for a hundred or so
it must have seen many fall to its foe

it weeps from the pain of watching earth die
it weeps for the victims of old times gone by

it has many ghost that have seen it grow old
it holds back its stories of hearts grown cold

the willow will weep for time gone away
the willow will weep for tomorrow today

it weeps for a purpose and thus gets its name
the willow is weeping for man is to blame

yet it still blooms and grows more each year
for hope still exsist through people that care

THE WEEPING WILLOW

Artist's Description

This is poem is now an addition to Anne Staubs “the willow” , who thought that it may compliment her work. i found her picture of the willow tree to be hauntingly stunning
and they seem to have an uncanny fit.
