A WEEPING WILLOW MOURNS

A WEEPING WILLOW MOURNS

See the weeping willow tree
Weeping because she left me

I mourn like the willow
My tears soak my pillow

My soul doth sorely yearn
Hoping that she will return

I weep with bitter tears
Nothing calms all my fears

Now that she is gone
I am left all alone

Hello Curtis, I know this poem is about a weeping willow tree. Yet I see this poem as a romantic poem a sad romantic poem. Have a nice evening my friend.

Thank you Darlene for these kind words. I am a romantic at heart and can't help but express it in writing.

Willows seem to flourish in Georgia. I don't have any in my yard but I do have a burgeoning hedge of leyland cypress trees. It pleases me that you enjoyed my poems enough to encourage me by commenting on them. Soup is a great tool for getting to know people even at long distance. Thanks for your support.

Another splendid job with a challenge. It was not so easy to do, being limited on the word count. I expect this will do well in the contest. So many of us chose willow. For me, the most interesting of the themes given.

Second attempt to say thanks -- I don't know what happened to the first. I had a bit of a struggle putting this together, didn't really like what it said, but submitted it anyway. Glad you liked it. By the way, I am enjoying your book tremendously. Thank you so much.
