Amazing Willow Tree - Poem by Tirupathi Chandrupatla

Play Poem Video

On the banks of a flowing brook
Or a shining still silver lake
We find a beautiful tree fresh
And green with drooping branches.

Willow tree it is, Salix babylonica
We know it as weeping willow
Gracefully simple and simply graceful
Quietly absorbing pain of the world.

All tree lovers love the tree
It gets lively green in a hurry
Its leaves hang from slender strings
Like bold brush strokes sweeping down.

Immortal impressionist Claude Monet
Painted the tree reflected in the lotus pond
By the oriental bridge that connected
Man's imagination from here to eternity.

Amazing weeping willow I feel inspired
I keep count of every one on my way
Repeating the process every day and this
Poem's a tribute to the marvelous tree.

    Oh the willow is a mystical tree. A tree connected to land and water long respected for it's ability ti bend not break. It's wood is burnt as incense and said to inspire insight into the future. It is said to be a tree of knowledge. (Report) Reply
