Weeping Willow

Weeping Willow

I shall e’er weep for thee,
β€˜Neath willow melancholy.
Amidst mossy stone,
Grave restlessness attone.

Fly me to a moon and star,
Offer shelter afar.
Β Alight upon heaven's floor
Miles vast to celestial door

Heaven's forget-me-not blue,
Eyes of beloved true
Benevolent mercy, solace me,
Balm tis sodden plea.

Heartless angels turn away,
Bereft, fervently I pray.
Prithee rent tragic plight,
Bear me to brilliant light.

Torrents implore me,
Love yearns to trek thee.
I solemnly bid, embrace me,
Abreast waters melancholy.

Lilt pelagic refrain
Β Lull forsaken bane
Amongst star and moon,
I yield to serene tune
