Willow

Poetry by | September 28, 2013

I admire the willow that grows over there
Branches are pliant can sway everywhere
Leaves so narrow can fly like a sparrow
Cat skin bearing so dark and hollow.
Has yield itself osiers and woods
Down that edgy soil where it grows
Thankful is he to find great comfort
To climate that gives him all sorts.
Such beauty exonerates pain
False convictions to deceiving lies
Subtle cries to pretentious smiles
Obvious lies to innocent pleading.
The willow itself speak out its meaning…
