Willow Tree (Poetry) Why does the Willow Tree weep? My interpretation... [182 words]
He stands near me,
His gnarled fingers grasp the pew,
Frail with the burden of age,
Struggle to hold him upright.
His face is written with the pain of the years.
Each sorrow has drawn,
A rut where each tear ran.
His eyes droop slightly,
Waiting to be relieved of this earthly burden,
And to take him to eternal sleep.
Slowly they close,
Extinguishing the blue fire…
His aging lips give no sound,
He sighs and begins to sing.
The voice runs
Rough as burlap.
Each note brings back a horrid memory.
Memories come flying to him.
The fill his soul.
They tell him why he is here.
And why they have forced him to traverse the world.
These memories are written in notes and measure.
They are written in stone.
She stands near him.
Her slender figure holds her upright,
Her arms are crossed with agitation.
Her face is painted with annoyance.
Each minute she stand by the pew takes its toll
On her ever dwindling store of patience.
Her eyes are bright,
They fly over the church.
Her youthful lips,
Then the two scarlet masses part
To create the song of an angel.
She is thinking…
Not of church…but of other things.
Does my hair look okay?
What about my make-up?
I don't see why I come here
This is pointless.
Her mind is elsewhere.
She knows no burden and no pain,
She only knows of superficial things.
Which is more precious?
The ignorance of youth or the agony of age.
