Weeping Willow

weeping willow

Weeping Willow, weep no more

though heart is frayed by cruel snow;

God has come, He won’t ignore

the darkness of this world below.

King in earthly flesh, in straw

was laid on cold December eve;

One whose sacrifice would thaw

the winter’s frost; please, do not grieve.

    Love a poem that starts out with weeping willows, Melody. Love the photo. Talking about weeping willows, if you haven’t heard this poet-musician from Tupelo, Paul Thorne, you really should. I was captivated when a friend took me to a concert here in town. His music is not just of one type, but all types together and yet none. Spiritual yet down to earth. He is a true poet. I think you would appreciate his work. 🙂

    Oh Mel, this just rocketed to the top of my Faves list, at least in the Christmas category!! 5-Star, and then some! (We have snow accumulation this a.m.) God bless you–love, Caddo
