The weeping willow on the river bank,
green with richness of the deep, dark soil,
its roots drinking in the goodness and
the trunk reaching higher every year,
lets its branches droop to create a veil
of shivering leaves that kiss the earth,
caress the waters and shade the sun
from the dappled peace at its foot.
