Willow Nestled Near a Forest Brook
A Willow nestled near a forest brook
As the wind made the tree’s shook
It swayed and bent
To the winds mighty glare, it bowed its lowly stem.
The brook runs down, cutting through the trees
Dancing and swirling in the light spring breeze
The water washes up, as foam on the sandy bank
As white as a winter snow bank.
The willow arches out in a plethora of branches
Each sprouting small flowers, to cover the naked branch.
The green swirls over the brown skin of the tree
Creating a leafy sea of green.
Finally when the howling of the wind comes to an end
The brook decides to stop its unending turns and bends.
The willow’s and its branches move no more,
And now the forest enters the night’s open door.
