The Weeping Tree

The Weeping Tree

A Poem by Kathrine Rethorn
"

A Grandfather's sad story

"
Buried beneath the Willow Tree is a sorrow unknown to me
Where my grandfather would tell me stories of his younger days, his glory 
When he was healthy and strong when he didn't know right from wrong 
When he first met his love, how their hands slid together, like a glove 
They often came to this Willow Tree, They often came to this Willow Tree 
Until one day she left before him, grandfather found her high in the limbs 
Her feet dangling just as low, as the willows trees gentle bow 
As grandfather spoke to me, about the good stories of the Willow Tree 
There were always notes of the sad times, the times where he still cries
But he still visits the weeping tree, I wonder if its just to see
The spirit of his first love, that dances with the stars above

Such a touching poem. It seemed very nostalgic and familiar, and written in a very artistic style. Very beautiful; thank you for taking the time to write such a gem.

There's a touch of sorrow and eeriness within this. They'll be someone waiting for him one day I suppose under better circumstances.
