The Willow Weeps


A weeping willow stands
looking out over the
waters

gracefully bends as the
trade-winds whip through
her hair

winter is quickly
approaching

icicles are forming
the days turn cold
nights are lonely

but soon spring will
return
the weather begins to
warm

ice starts to melt
she begins to cry
the waters flow again.

To war and arms I fly.
