Oh lovely weeping willow tree Why do you tearfully weep Your graceful arms hang down On your brow you wear a frown Beautiful head of hair swaying to the ground Wind whispering through you no sound Surely, you have awoken Why have you not spoken You simply stare as I pass by I thought I heard you sigh Perhaps today your spirits are low But I will never know I too like you Feel sad, lonely, and blue I feel just like you willow tree I do silently weep Words, words, words Unpleasant, evil, horrible, words I heard Hurt me deep down inside They wounded my pride My tears flowed into the deep dark sea I am like the weeping willow tree All hurt inside of me I chose to keep Now like you weeping willow tree I weep 2007 Janet Irene Griffin

 About The Author:   

GREETINGS! Welcome to my planet! My name is Janet I enjoy creative writing and creating poems. I have a love for words. Words are music to me. Poetry to me is about feeling. It's creating a painting with words. Poetry is playing with words. Poetry is using the senses. Poetry is about life experiences, observations, using the imagination-meditation. Poetry to me is freedom of expression. Poetry is about following your dreams. Poetry is in sounds, listen to the wind chimes, the waves splashing against the rocks, birds chirping, rain pouring, countless sounds. Poetry is breathing. Poetry is in nature. I hope that you will take time and read my poems. I would be happy to get feedback from you. I started writing in 2007 after the sudden passing of my brother in 2006, I needed a way to express my loss. My poem in memory of my dear brother is entitled, "Ode To A Dear Friend." Thank you for reading my poems and please sign my guest book.
