A willow's branch sways in the wind,
and waves goodbye to her old friend.
As if to lift in some odd way,
my spirits on this final day,
when I must leave her in the bay,
and take my children from their play.
For in the valley...as they say,
you can visit...never stay
So thank you willow, you did lend,
your time to us, on Willow's Bend.
