Haiku: The Weeping Willow by Haley Despard


I haven’t attempted poetry in a while, but this was an English assignment for school, and I think it turned out okay.

Inspired by this tree in my backyard (not sure if it's a real weeping willow or not, but it looks like it to me).

Haiku: The Weeping Willow

By Haley Despard

The willow weeps in

The corner of the field. They

Wonder what she mourns.

Her weighted limbs sag

And faint, bringing sorrow to

A green, limpid world.

The trees misunderstand

Her dreary form; they beg her

To stand tall and proud.

They do not know her

Nature is to sag and faint,

But her strength is great.
