ON THE RIVER BANK

Whither,
O willow,
weeping so free-
shading the stream unto
the
sea.
Hither,
O willow,
whisper to me-
the comings and goings
you see.

    You bring life to the Willow (my favorite tree) as it well deserves for it's beauty cannot be compared. Well, it has special meaning to me, as one is planted in our front yard as symbol of my tears when my mom passed. You paint a beautiful picture and more. Love, Shar

    This is lovely, Brian! I love weeping wilows. We live on a river and my street is named after my favorite tree! There are still a few left. I will think of this poem when I look at them. Thank you for your kind thoughts this morning! Love, Robin

    Great poetry must linger on the soul and eye when the reading is done ... the words are hauntingly lyrical ... and calls to greatness, pointing to the greatness in you.
