Sweet Willow Tree

Down by the lake, planted magically nearby Stands a sweet willow tree forty feet high. The crystallized tree glitters so bright; Bursting with colours of candy delights. Children from all over visit each day To gather and gaze the delicious array. Circling the tree, they dance around; Hand in hand, like a merry-go-round. Their energy stirs such a powerful swirl, Sending the branches into a twirl. Dangling bonbons begin to fall; Baskets are filled leaving nothing at all. Twilight arrives with its colourful glow And sugar filled blossoms begin to grow. By morning the willow is flourished and sweet, Ready for the day's visitors to greet! by Ana Espinola Collins

This is beautiful, full of vibrant images. The weeping willow is my favorite tree and I have memories of playing under one with my sister.

It's my favourite tree too especially when there's a breeze the branches sway so gracefully...so magical! Thx for visiting Monterey and your nice comment :) Ana

Hi Ana. Love this little light-hearted gem...magical and dreamy. I gotta get me one of those trees...though, I think I'd rather have one that grows rare steak and strong cheese...okay...that's kinda nasty now that I think about a tree with stinky cheese on it....I'll bet there wouldn't be nearly as many kids around it though..lol

A very beautiful write with nice rhyme and flow. The only bad thing about a tree like that would be the cavities of those that over indulge.
