Willow’s Story

Willow, bend
make amends
for when you lend
your heart…

Love’s misspent
when you’ve no intent
to never wend
your heart…

Willow, cry
hide face, shy
why did you lie
to your heart?

With willows’ dance
comes true romance
so if you ever wend,
to me, befriend

for I will nurture your dear heart.

How sad, Sunshine, and not like your usual style at all. Hope everything's OK.

Very sweet and touching Sunshine. Great job- nothing less would be expected from you though.

Sunshine,  I loved the analogy of the willow tree and your heart. Beautifully written....
the bending and crying of the willow as you proceed with caution. Lovely piece. marcy
