Thy Lonely Tree

Thy Lonely Tree

A Poem by Doodley
"

Identifying with nature

"
Weeping Willow, hear my pleas,

Enclose your branch, shed not your leaves;

Thy Lonely Tree, do not you see?

That you am I, and I am thee,

Silently standing, unbound and free,

Here we sway, together as three.

Past, present and future. Just a short sextet. Nothing incredible.

Wow....just..wow....I do not even have words to praise this.... I could feel my heart jump in between...... The fact that you connected being lonely in human life with a tree.....just simply beautiful.. "That you am I, and I thee" my favorite line..
But pls do explain the meaning of the last line as I do not understand the reference to the "three"

Loved how you’ve related your inner feelings to that of nature. Nature has an amazing way of helping us see ourselves. This is truly an amazing little treasure. Thank you 😊

Thank you for reading and reviewing, Troy. I appreciate your time and thoughts on this poem.


Wow! You are a true poet perfect. Brotherhood and comraderie between people having common hardship is possible. But, only poets can make anyone and anything their companion.
Incredible!
But your saying something incredible as , 'nothing incredible ' is a bit too much.
I guess, loneliness should be the third one in the threesome two .
I loved the internal rhyming of 'the lonely tree, do you not see' and the wording of the next one very much.
Thanks for sharing. Keep writing.:)

For me the most captivating line was - Silently standing, unbound and free.
