Queen Willow, Still Weeps

(A Weeping Willow Mourns)

Queen Willow, Still Weeps

Weeping on a hill, north
Swaying, with a lonely pang
Taking in the sun’s warmth
For tonight, she WILL reign

Misunderstood, by stiff older trees
Standing together, her lies believed

For the power, she lusts
She laughs, the wind gusts
Her flexibility, ensures her throne

Mourning dawns…. she stands alone

Nice write ... Mythically weeping willows are in reality very strong, robust and almost always laugh green ... enjoyed the poem ... best wishes for the contest ...

Thank you Probir! I'm not sure where this even came from. I love to see lone willows in wide open spaces, so peaceful. Somehow, she had a mood swing. Thanks for your comment. Jeffrey
