The Willow

Though the lightning comes
Though the thunder roars		
The willow still remains.		

Though the rain pounds down
Though the wind howls round
The willow stands the pain.

The weather tries to hurt
Tries to bring it down
But never has the luck.		

It tries and tries
For the willow’s soul
But from its roots it cannot pluck.

It doesn’t realize 
Causing pain
Cannot outlast the fight.	

The fight to stay 
Rooted in
The ground with all your might.

    Monique, check out how your first poem looks to other people by going to VIEW. For some reason, there is no comment box coming up for us. It's too bad. I really enjoyed the bio of yours and wanted to tell you so. So I'll tell you here. and you are a GREAT poet, as this one shows me too.
