Willow Weep

Heavy verdant draped limbs
Reach high and wide
Basking in warmth
Even as the sheer weight
Turns its more tender arms
Downward

Aye willow, weep for me

Each sultry leaf
Swaying
In the gentle breeze
Like the tears
On the precipice
Of my chin
Waiting, waiting
Waiting to fall

Aye willow, weep for me

Concealed
In its lush canopy
Foliage vales
As tears threaten
One day at a time,
They say
But today
Is summer solstice
Giving the sun
More time to sparkle on
Glistening tears
If only they
Would heed and fall

Aye willow, weep for me
