Where hanging weeping willows grow a collaboration with Robert J Lindley

 Clear stream where weeping willow's 
grow 
 Beyond small valleys and the hills.
She puts on a cool - summers show 
 Before winter's first cold chills.

Beneath beaming moon, on she flows 
 It's falling rays dancing in tune.
 It's banks weeping Willows hang low
Majestic site in month of June.

Soft summer breeze blows through The trees
Whispering calls from long ago. 
 Branches low moving to and fro
Keeping green willows swaying slow.

Of this stream that the willows flank. 
 I see spread out here before me.
Soft midnight dance upon the banks
Held captive by this beauty free.

I stand there silent in a trance 


( A collaboration with Robert J. Lindley)

Thank you my friend for collaborating with me on this wonderful poem. I did so enjoy your wonderful closing verses and our working together to present this poem. Your final closing verse was icing on the cake, thank you. I've been in that "trance" (many times), in awe of the majesty of Nature and its many wonders!
