brilliant trellis

Crowned by thorns,

breaking its chains,

daylight conquers.

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.
