The Weeping Willow Stands

March 15, 2008
By Julia Birmele, Naples, FL

The weeping willow stands
But it leans to the side
The willow doesn't like the open
The weeping willow only hides

It never looks up
The willow's head hangs low
It walks slow and staggered
The weeping willow can't let go

The willow never talks
It keeps to itself
It stays away from the world
And everyone else

It doesn't show emotion
The weeping willow won't cry
The willow never smiles
And the rose bush will never know why

The willow tries not to be obvious
But it's not hard to see
Have you guessed by now
The weeping willow is me
