Oh willow tree

you'll not fool me

your happier than most

I watch you sway with 
such delight                                    

you mere can keep from 

I see no weeping                                                                         
no woes worth keeping

and yet in form you droop

know this dear tree

you'll not fool me

as I rest upon your stoop

I'll collect my nuts

I'll carve my cuts

Into your nimble limbs  

then you shall see
Why willows weep

as me and mine shall keep

a home sweet home 

forever loaned

Inside of you so deep

    Thank you for sharing your poetry Melody. Poets here offer such diverse writings and to me it is a pleasure to read each and everyone. I will not be here at the Soup to read from Friday through Monday. I hope you will find mountains of inspiration during that time. I look forward to reading when I return. Have a great weekend. Love, Carol
