Weep Willow Weep

Weep willow weep your weary winter woe At the sight of your icy, new trousseau, Above the frosted brook, a mirror faux Her reflection was horribly so-so, With rigid branches laced in flakey snow White, a favorite color, not hers though, Clear crystals clung, dressing her to and fro All stitched on by a hand who did not sew, Frozen stiff, her tears slow their new tempo. (November 8th, 2022)

So plaintive and melancholy a picture of the willow in winter Kelly. Interesting rhymes. Congratulations on your win. All the best.

Dear Kelly, your poetic finesse captures the mood of the wintry weeping willow with finesse. I enjoyed your rich textured imagery, especially, "Above the frosted brook, a mirror faux" - whoa! Such great monorhymes throughout. Congratulations for your excellent win in William's contest. Warmest wishes.. ~Susan

So very descriptive is this one. I do enjoy seeing weeping willows. I had one my back yard, but it started dying and we had to remove it. You have done a very good job on giving some personification to this willow and the ice and snow. Thanks for sharing and for dropping by my page. Sara

Thank you Eve... This poem was inspired by my Mom. She doesn't mind the winter, but she dreads having to drive in the snow and the freezing cold.
