Beneath The Willow Tree

Loving long beneath the moon, the willow tree our canopy Sweet the words we murmured soft, promising all, expecting all Innocence, before the willow cries for lost youth , so fleeting.... Holding hands, 'neath the willow, remembering youthful passion Peaceful moon, a deeper love transcending time, circumstances Closing doors, a great mystery they face at last, together

hmmm, ending with a mystery. . . The willow is a tree I have used in my own poetry as a symbol of nostalgia and fading dreams or memories. So nice. Congrats on the win, sweetie.

"circumstances Closing doors, a great mystery they face at last, together" What a bridge to the last line revealing the non existence of - at last - the appearance of that same bridge.... Tripled respect fur this huge imagery totally in balance with the lines 'guiding' towards the grande finale. CONGRATS Dutch greetings.

your poem gave me a thought, I wonder as poets we tend to relive moments, if I had spent time with someone under the moon beneath a willow tree I would eventually write about it, but do they, would such a moment as the one you wrote about even be remembered by the one that was there or would it be forgotten, is it a curse or a joy to remember such moments with clairity?..forgive me but your beautiful poem brought this thought
