A rose and candy given to thee,
Initials carved on willow tree;
Hand in hand in sunny park,
Low whispers till after dark.

Together we go to the matinee;
We think of each thoughout the day.
We watch the animals in the clouds
And laugh at the busy rush-hour crowds.

We see sun set and rising moon
Planning for our day in June.
Old fashioned is what we'll ever be
As we dream beneath the willow tree.


“It is not the strongest of the species that survive, nor the most
intelligent, but the one most responsive to change.” Charles Darwin

Wow, I like this a lot  
Great Job Alicat,
I hope there's always a Willow tree
wherever you may be  

Sometimes we have to follow a stronger voice, even if it's silent.

Very nicely done Ali......I loved this...especially the part about the willow tree. I usually use a weeping willow to portray a willow is used in a different way....very enlightening.
A great read!

I was born myself, raised myself, and will continue to be myself. The world will just have to adjust.

I'm in love with my shadow
I admire it daily

very nice kitty, makes me miss my tree

"Glory remains unaware of my neglected dwelling where alone
I sing my tearful song which has charms only for me."

ALICAT, ya know those critters in the clouds are the sweetest to gaze upon, as imagination is what it's about when ya take a look at those puffy white clouds...

I really enjoyed your poem and I thank you for the delightful read
