WEBSTER'S
DICTIONARY

.

Behold a willow's startling scene, 
One thousand fingers in the wind, 
Bend, bend, bending, 
The stature of the stem, 
Contained within a phantom wing 
It demonstrates momentum

Stretch out and up to touch the sky 
And grant me immortality; 
Look down and hold me to the ground 
That I might keep reality.  

Behold a willow's delicate appearance, 
Mad whistling wind cannot defy, 
Bend, bend, bending, 
The ages such avow, 
To linger with the best of them 
Its beauty so endowed?

Stretch out and up to touch the sky, 
Betray my blinding heart, 
That I might have the strength to be 
Remembering to depart.
