The Willow Weeps

I feel left bare
naked of charm
the mystery of me
when in fullest delight
as left a shiver
so quick as the fall of the night.

My fruits that fed,
shelter to the storm,
the hidden lovers, undiscovered,
and their laughter upon my throne.

What of me now?
as winter as called,
no lovers delight,
to rest at my feet,
for I am the willow,
taste my tears
as I weep.

    I love this fabulous poem. The Weeping willow has always been one of my faves. I love trees, but, these hold a special place in my heart. I am sorry to hear about your car, and the BILL! Yickes! They are outrageous, aren't they? Love Christie

    Beautifully done, Ann!! I love the personification of this, and the chilly nature you led the reader. A bit of mystery. Nicely done! :) Fondly, Carrie

    This is so visual and sad for the tree as it watched over love in the warm seasons and stands bare now in the cold. Very well written as it flows smoothly and has the perfect tone. Michael
